The AJBCC and its counterpart the JABCC come together every October for their annual Joint Business Conference held alternately in Australia and Japan. This year Melbourne will be the host city. With around 400 delegates, this year’s overall theme is “New Challenges – New Ideas”.
Whilst the enactment of the Japan Australia Economic Partnership Agreement (JAEPA) in 2015 has signalled new business opportunities in the Australia-Japan relationship, there is widespread business understanding that the overall global economic environment and technology advances are subjecting core sectors to challenges which have not been witnessed before. Plunging resources and energy prices, concerns about China's economic transition, the impact of disruptive technologies on mature products and business process services, environmental issues and continuing excessive global liquidity make for a difficult path to be navigated.
How are these challenges being met in the Australia-Japan context and what new ideas can we see emerging to mitigate such issues? New Challenges - New Ideas provides a forum for discussion amongst senior Australian and Japanese executives. This Joint Business Conference, the 54th annual one, explores key issues relevant to companies currently in the Australia-Japan business space, as well as those wishing to expand their business into this segment.
