Apart from the large delegation from Greater China and the host country Australia, more members from the USA joined the conference, highlighting the business interest in Asia Pacific from the USA in particular.
The conference, dedicated to ‘Partnerships for Prosperity’ welcomed distinguished speakers Daniel Bisignano from the Department of Economic Development Jobs Transport and Resources, and Eric Vassiliadis, State Manager BT Investment Solutions Economist, who delivered the keynote speech and insight on doing business in Australia and its connection to Asia Pacific.
