We are happy to invite you to our joint seminar with the Australian Trade and Investment Commission (Austrade) on key topics of the current trade and investment landscape between Europe and Asia-Pacific.
The current global trade and investment landscape is being disrupted by the growing economic rivalry between China and the United States. As a result, the economic ties between Europe and Asia-Pacific are getting even closer than before. Australia and EU countries such as Germany are adjusting their trade relationships to cope with the new realities. What does this mean for German businesses operating internationally?
We will look at three headline topics which are impacting business opportunities for European companies in Asia-Pacific, namely China's reaction to decreasing inbound investments, second global supply chain planning and third post-election changes to the energy landscape in Australia.
While China is changing its rules for foreign investors to access the market with the enactment of the brand-new Foreign Investment Law, its attractiveness as a global supply chain hub is coming under pressure as U.S. and European multinational companies are looking elsewhere for manufacturing capabilities. At the same time, rapid digitalisation of supply chain management means that many companies have to fundamentally restructure their supply chains.
Last year Australia had become the second most attractive country in Asia for renewable energy investment and 5th overall, thanks to the record sums committed to large-scale wind and solar, as well as rooftop installations. With the federal election behind it the investment landscape is likely to become clearer.
The seminar will be of interest to anyone interested in the current changes to the trade and investment landscape in Asia-Pacific.
