    SMBC Global Seminar
    "Thinking of New Investment Opportunities in Australia"

    In 2017, Japan and Australia celebrated its 40th anniversary of the Basic Treaty of Friendship and Cooperation, and the relationship is stronger than ever. Japan is Australia's second largest export and third largest import source, and Japanese cumulative investment into Australia is the second largest.

    Although the two countries establish this successful relationship, Japanese businesses limits its image of the Australian industry to being only mining and real estate. More than 70% of Australia's GDP is produced from the service sector, and promoting new opportunities as such to Japan are important to lever the business opportunities between the two countries.

    This seminar will help attendees that currently consider expanding their business in Australia have an oversight of the potential industries, and representatives from state government will introduce the various investment opportunities a Japanese corporate would need to know.

    Opening remarks from Australian Ambassador to Japan, HE Richard Court AC
    Keynote speech from Senior Trade & Investment Commissioner, Brett Cooper

    First panel discussion - Each state government representative (New South Wales, Queensland, Victoria, Western Australia, Northern Territory) presents on opportunities in their state.

    Second panel discussion - Discussion on industry sectors from an investment perspective: Renewable energy and "clean tech"ICT and creative industries, drug discovery and the testing market, agriculture, Industry-Academia Collaboration.

    The event will be conducted in both English and Japanese. 

    Date: Friday 15 February 2019
    Time: 1:30PM - 5:00PM (doors open at 1:00PM)
    Venue: SMBC Office Level 3 Main Hall  (1-1-2, Marunouchi, Chiyoda-ku, Tokyo, Japan)

    Registration closes Monday 11 February 2019
