Event description

Description

The Australia China Business Council, in collaboration with the German-Australian Chamber of Industry and the American Chamber of Commerce, is pleased to invite you to an exclusive Business Dinner with Andrew Mackenzie, CEO of BHP and President of the German Chamber.

Free trade is vital to the strength of the global economy and the healthy flow investment around the world. Trade tensions between China and the United States, combined with US tariffs on steel and aluminium imports, have implications for countries and businesses that depend on open markets in order to thrive. Elsewhere, policy-makers have re-embraced free trade, which has underpinned global growth. It is our collective responsibility to champion the benefits of free trade and create the ideal conditions under which business, countries and the people who live in them will prosper.
