Free Trade Agreements (FTAs) open up significant opportunities for Australian businesses and investors to expand globally.
What strategies, experiences and best-case practices are enabling women and men in Australian-based businesses to expand internationally and connect with developed Asian markets?
In Asia, Australia has FTAs in place with Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand and the Association of South East Asian Nations (ASEAN). Australia recently signed an FTA with South Korea and an Economic Partnership Agreement with Japan. When these two agreements come into force, the opportunities to do business with Japan and South Korea – Australia’s second largest and fourth largest trading partner respectively – will multiply.
Women in Global Business and ANZ are hosting a half-day seminar to help you maximise the benefits of doing business in the developed markets of Asia.
Keynote speakers will provide an overview of FTAs, and prominent Australian businesswomen who have succeeded in Asia will share their success stories and strategies.
