Challenges and opportunities - analysing the impact of US/China tensions on Australian business

As the world looks on with uncertainty as the two biggest economies continue to square off with one another on trade issues, the question of the impact to Australian business and the broader economy has never been more relevant or important.


With China Australia’s number one trading partner and the USA Australia’s number one investor, the ability of Australian businesses to navigate the potential challenges and seize new opportunities will be important to Australia’s prosperity.


ANZ’s expert economists, David Plank (Head of Australian Economics) and Betty Wang (Senior China Economist) will provide an overview of the situation as it currently stands before joining Bloomberg’s Juliette Saly in an in-depth panel discussion.


Will a diversified economy in Australia and capitalisation on growth in Asia in a broad range of sectors, combined with the export of Australia’s rich resources be enough to insulate Australian businesses from the current trade hostilities? Join us on July 31 to find out.
