23 May AJBCC Future Leaders Program: Sydney Seminar
The AJBCC’s Future Leaders group is convening a seminar Japan: Still a Huge Opportunity for Australia. To be held in Sydney on Monday 20 June, 2016 from 12:30 to 2:00pm it will feature two excellent speakers. The seminar is sponsored by Allens.
The seminar – the first in a series to be arranged by the AJBCC Future Leaders group – aims to address a number of key questions which will assist in equipping future leaders in maximising the opportunities in Australia’s trade and business relationship with Japan including:
The presentation and discussion aims to cover the following questions:
- How can future leaders leverage off past successes, particularly in new growth areas?
- Have concerns regarding Japan’s current domestic economics and demographics been over-stated?
- Cultural differences are often raised as a barrier to doing business in Japan – is this still the case in 2016?
- How can Australia best take advantage of the recent Economic Partnership Agreement?
- In an age of unprecedented technological and business innovation, how can the bilateral relationship with Japan be a major asset for Australian businesses in the decades to come?
- What can future leaders do within their own organisations to realise the opportunities?
- What can we learn from current trends such as increased reciprocal tourism, especially the growth in ‘food tourism’, and other new business ventures such as cosmetics, health and organic products?
- Wendy Holdenson, Director and Executive Vice President, Mitsui and Co (Australia) Ltd.
- Yoshinori Sakuno, Global Managing Director, doq.
