Description

In response to the rapidly evolving situation in Australia, ACBC QLD regretfully advises that the Ins and Outs of China Outbound Investment event on Tuesday, March 31st has been postponed until further notice. A rescheduled date will be announced as soon as we can. This was a very difficult decision, however, the health and wellbeing of our staff, members and guests is our first priority. We appreciate that this may come as a disappointment for many of us who were looking forward to this event. We are committed to supporting our members and our experienced speakers are looking forward to connecting with you when the event has been rescheduled.

Date: Tuesday 31 March 2020
Time: 11.45am registration for 12.00pm - 2.00pm
Venue: King & Wood Mallesons, Level 33, Waterfront Place, 1 Eagle Street, Brisbane

Format: Presentation and Q&A

In conjunction with King & Wood Mallesons, we invite you to an exclusive boardroom lunch discussing the latest updates, trends and challenges facing China as a major global foreign investor.

Topics for discussion include:

  • What capital controls do Chinese investors need to consider when investing in Australia?
  • What other outbound approvals and processes are involved, and who are the regulators?
  • What is the Chinese Government’s current attitude towards outbound investment?
  • What are the biggest challenges and how can those be overcome?
  • Is there still a “China premium” compared to investors from other jurisdictions?
  • What can we do better at our end to assist?
  • How is FIRB perceived by Chinese investors?


This is an opportunity to hear what Chinese investors are taking into consideration when looking across the shore, and what this means for businesses in Australia. The discussion will be led by Jonathan Grant, Partner; and Karim Issa, Senior Associate from King & Wood Mallesons.

We hope you can join us.
