Event description
ACBC will host a summit on 13 July 2021 to explore business opportunities and challenges with greater China in the agribusiness sector.

About this event

The Australia China Business Council (ACBC), with support from the National Foundation for Australia-China Relations (NFACR) will host a hybrid industry summit exploring business opportunities and challenges with greater China in the agribusiness and F&B sector.

As the world adapts to life with COVID, Australia’s $150 billion agribusiness sector faces critical challenges and disruptions. But the numbers don’t lie. China remains Australia’s largest agricultural export market, taking over one third of exports with diverse and increasing opportunities for export growth and capital raising.

China remains the engine room for global economic growth, driven by its increasingly affluent, urbanised and health-conscious middle class and technological advancements. As such, China’s demand for healthy, high-quality agricultural products shows no signs of slowing down.

▶️ With an emphasis on practical advice for agricultural providers, the ACBC Australia-China Agribusiness Industry Summit will cover a full range of issues relevant to exporters as well as logistics providers, producers, food and beverage providers and cross-border investors.

▶️ Staying connected, engaged and informed remains the key priority for the ACBC and the Australia-China business community in this challenging time. Join this important forum to place yourself among an eminent community of business leaders and decision makers committed to the bilateral business relationship.
