Chairman’s Invitation

I am sending you this invitation to join the Australian delegation at the 33rd Joint Conference of the ATBC and its Taiwan counterpart, the ROC-Australia Business Council (ROCABC), 29-31 August 2019, at the W Hotel Brisbane and Queensland Art Gallery & Gallery of Modern Art (QAGOMA), Queensland.

The 33rd Joint Conference – A Premier Event in Australia-Taiwan Relations.

The ATBC is proud to host the 33rd Joint Conference of the two Councils, a significant milestone marking 36 years of achievement for the business communities of the two countries. The Joint Conferences attract outstandingly successful business people, public sector leaders and distinguished scholars from the two countries. If you have business or other interests in Taiwan – or if you are looking for a prosperous and dynamic new market – then the 33rd Joint Conference is a ‘must-attend’ event for you.

This year, the Joint Conference is designed to assist delegates profit from momentous changes in Taiwan and China and the consequent unprecedented commercial opportunities. I am sure it will be the best event ever hosted by ATBC!

Australia and Taiwan



Taiwan – a modern, high tech economy and one of Australia’s largest trading partners

Last year, Taiwan, with a population of just over 23 million, was Australia’s seventh largest export market.

Like Australia, Taiwan is an island country of high civility, a parliamentary democracy with a strong legal system and an independent judiciary. 

An advanced economy, the island’s strengths in ICT and other high-tech industries are well known. Its business people have decades of experience in international trade and investment. The rule of law prevails and intellectual property is protected.

One of the largest investors in China, Taiwan is an attractive gateway to the mainland. Taiwan is a compelling choice for Australian business.



The 33rd Joint Conference

The theme of the 33rd Joint Conference is:


Australia and Taiwan



The Conference theme reflects the sophistication and robustness of the two economies and the complementarities of their industries. It also suggests that business people in Australia and Taiwan may be under-rating the opportunities in each other’s markets.

The Taiwan delegation at the 33rd Conference will be led by Mr Wei-Fuu Yang, Chairman, ROCABC and Chairman, Taiwan Power Corporation (Taipower). Chairman Yang is well known to many Australian business leaders, especially those in the energy sector.

The ROCABC delegation will comprise up to fifty of Taiwan’s leading business people.

The Conference is an outstanding opportunity for delegates and sponsors to meet some of Taiwan’s most successful and influential business leaders and, more importantly, to discover new business opportunities.

The 33rd Joint Conference is supported by the Queensland Government, Austrade [ATBC National Partner], Australian Office Taipei, Taipei Economic and Culture Office in Australia, New Hope Group, Teco Australia Pty Ltd, MOS Burger Australia Pty Ltd, China Airlines, Eva Air and Bank of Taiwan, Sydney Branch and many other organisations.

Total attendance at the Conference is estimated at up to 200 persons.
