Nikkei, Japan’s prestigous newspaper group will host a high level forum in Sydney on Thursday Oct 15, 2015. The theme is The New Era of Asia – The Role of Australia and Japan in the Region.
Now that the Japan-Australia Economic Partnership Agreement (JAEPA) has taken effect, the relationship between the two countries is closer than ever. Between the two lie the promising economies of Southeast Asia, which are set to integrate this year by creating the ASEAN Economic Community.
