Breakfast by the Bay- The Rise and Rise of WA’s Economy: Japan’s Vital Role
Winthrop Professor Phil Dolan, Dean, UWA Business School, cordially invites you to attend the upcoming Breakfast by the Bay which will explore the role of Japan in WA’s economic and cultural growth. The Facilitator for this event is Sir Rod Eddington, prominent Australian businessman. Panellists include Peter Coleman, Managing Director and CEO Woodside, Keizo Sakurai, General Manager Mitsui & Co and President, Japan Chamber of Commerce & Industry, Perth, and other leading government and business figures. Since the early 1960s, Japan has invested in Western Australia’s growing economy and its wider community. Beginning with significant investments in Iron Ore projects in the Pilbara and WA’s first LNG development in the North West Shelf, this relationship has grown to include culture, tourism, defence, real estate and scientific cooperation. Australian and Japanese government and business leaders will discuss the ongoing importance of Japanese investment in Western Australia and highlight the significant developments in bilateral trade over the decades. This event revisits and celebrates the past, present and future development of the Australia-Japan partnership and the enduring role of Japan’s investment in contributing to the State’s dominance as an economic powerhouse. This event coincides with the 50th Anniversary Celebration of the Australia Japan Business Co-operation Committee’s (AJBCC) and is proudly supported by the UWA Business School, Allens and the Australia Japan Business Co-operation Committee.
