Event Date: 
25 June 2013
Hyatt Regency Perth


Join CEDA for this exclusive address as the Australian Ambassador to the People's Republic of China, Frances Adamson, provides unique insight into the economic standing of one of Australia's most important trade partners, China.

Australia has been one of the largest beneficiaries of China's economic transformation over the past three decades. However, China's leadership agrees its development model now needs to change if it is to continue delivering tangible improvements to the lives of its citizens.

Ambassador Adamson will look at the likely direction of China's economic reforms and new leadership to provide an overview of the impact for Australia.
