Hosted by Export Development Canada at the stunning Four Seasons Hotel Sydney, please join the CACC as we present Chief Economist, Peter Hall.


The world economy is a lot stronger than most of us think, and at this very moment is loaded with opportunities for trade-oriented economies like Canada and Australia.

In late November 2017, Export Development Canada (EDC) will officially open its Australian operation in Sydney with this special event featuring Peter Hall, Vice-President and Chief Economist, EDC. The Sydney operation marks EDC’s 20th international representation.

A Crown corporation that operates at arm’s length from Government, Export Development Canada is Canada’s export credit agency. EDC supports and develops Canada’s export trade by helping Canadian companies respond to international opportunities.

With a formal presence in Australia, EDC will be well situated to build and strengthen bilateral trade between Canada and Australia. EDC will do so by offering financing to Australian companies and project owners that have, or are considering, business with Canadian companies or their affiliates in the region.

Export Development Canada has a history of supporting a number of Australian companies such as Origin Energy, Woodside, GoldLinQ and Optus, to name but a few.


This event is for:

  • Canadian exporters and investors into Australia
  • Partners who can support these Canadian investors and exporters
  • Anyone interested in learning more about economic factors regarding Canadian-Australian future trade relations


Ticket includes catered lunch. Spaces are limited, so please book in advance to avoid disappointment.
