Emerging Market Turbulence: Implications for Australian Organisations
1st Nov 2013 9:30am-12:30pm
Over the past two decades, the world has witnessed the phenomenal economic growth of Asia, in particular China and India. Their average GDP growth rate for the period 1993 - 2012 was 10.15% and 6.73% respectively, while Australia's average was 3.48% (World Bank, 2013).
Asian economic growth has been the driving force behind Australia's resources boom and its positive ripple effects on the economy. However, in recent years their growth rate has been slowing down, and their reliance on Australia's resource sector is expected to subside, Asia's economic growth and recent turbulence constitutes both an opportunity and a threat for Australian companies. Australian companies need to innovate and develop new strategies to grow and compete in the Asian century. We invite both industry and academic speakers to a half-day seminar addressing the opportunities and threats ahead for Australian companies.
