MENA – New Reality, New Markets, New Sectors
A collaboration between AACCI, Austrade & Victoria State Government
The MENA region is undergoing a period of dramatic change driven by two powerful forces: a prolonged period of low oil prices and a major shift towards greater geopolitical and economic stability in its largest countries. This means the region must look for different sources of revenue and ways to restructure and diversify their economies.
In order to effectively position Australia and leverage regional opportunities, Austrade MENA in conjunction with the Department of Foreign Affairs & Trade, State Governments and AACCI are inviting you to learn more about the political and business environment of the region. There will be in-depth discussion on sectors with the most potential in leading export and driving investment back into Australia and in-market support available for Australian entities.
Amng the visiting VIPs and regional market specialists who will be presenting at the seminar are:
- Australian Ambassadors HE Arthur Spyrou & HE Ian Biggs
- Trade Commissioners Gerard Seeber, Mark Morley & Lino Strangis
- Commissioner to the MENA & Turkey, Govt of Victoria John Butler
- Senior Vice President - Commercial, Dubai South Justin Wilshaw
Following the seminar, there will be an opportunity to network with Australian Ambassadors and Trade Commissioners who can help you identify the trade and investment prospects for your company in the MENA region.
