Western Australia and ASEAN: A Shared Economic Recovery.

About this Event

The Western Australia-ASEAN Trade and Investment Dialogue is an annual international engagement initiative of the Western Australian Government, delivered by the Department of Jobs, Tourism, Science and Innovation in partnership with the Perth USAsia Centre.

The dialogue enables the Western Australian Government and business community to build stronger relationships with influential government, business and community leaders across the dynamic communities and markets of Southeast Asia.

The purpose of the annual Dialogue is to help strengthen economic and institutional understanding between WA and Southeast Asian countries, showcase complementary opportunities for trade and investment growth and enhance economic ties.

In 2020, the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic have only hastened the need for WA to build closer economic and business relations with key markets in Southeast Asia. Developing stronger trade and investment links with large and emerging Southeast Asian markets is not a future pursuit, but an immediate WA business and economic imperative.

With both WA and Southeast Asia beginning to focus on post-COVID-19 economic and business recovery opportunities, as well as the need to strengthen supply chains with secure and reliable trading partners, the theme of this year’s Dialogue is WA and ASEAN: A Shared Economic Recovery.

This year’s Dialogue, held over the full week 16-20 November, will take the form of daily live, online presentations and panel discussions.

Each session will focus on a different area and feature established and emerging business leaders, policymakers and economists from both WA and Southeast Asia.
