57th Annual Joint Business Conference

The AJBCC’s annual conference is a forum for discussion amongst senior Australian and Japanese executives.
Join with other members of the AJBCC, the JABCC as well as both organisations’ Future Leaders Program (FLP) at the annual business conference which will be held in Osaka, Japan from Monday 7th October to Wednesday 9th October 2019.

OVERALL CONFERENCE THEME: New Partnership for the Future

In an increasingly global landscape marked by challenges such as the US-China trade war, Brexit and the geopolitical risks surrounding the Korean Peninsula, the business risks have never been greater. So there has never been a more critical time for companies to read the future. Hence, there is an expectation on Japan and Australia, which share democratic values and embrace the free market, to show leadership through the development of new perspectives and fresh ideas.

In building a better future delivering global development and business growth, there will be a need to develop new alliances and partnerships. By their nature, these are very likely to transcend and cut across the stereotypical categories of industry sectors, regions, nations and even generations.

So our conference ‘New Partnership for the Future’ is designed to explore, from a variety of angles, the potential for new business opportunities between our two countries that could map us through this challenging environment.
