The forums will bring together leading ASEAN business experts for an interactive discussion and first-hand perspectives on the pressing considerations for Australian businesses looking to understand, enter or grow in ASEAN’s diverse markets. Providing a deep-dive and fresh insights into some of the key opportunities for growth, the forums will explore themes including:

Understanding ASEAN’s changing consumers

Leveraging ASEAN’s common market

Innovation and the digital economy

International education: providing quality experiences to gain a competitive edge

Events in the series will also take place in Sydney, Melbourne and Perth with live streaming sites in Upper Hunter Shire and Warrnambool. All Australian businesses are invited to attend the forums in their location of choice.
