2017 SYDNEY CHINA BUSINESS FORUM

Capitalising on China’s digital revolution

China, our largest trading partner, is dramatically transforming its economy through digitisation. So how are you capitalising on this?

The Sydney China Business Forum will help answer this question. The Sydney China Business Forum, now in its 7th year, has become one of the leading events focusing on business interactions between Australia and China. The China Studies Centre will be running this year's forum in collaboration with the University of Sydney Business School. The Forum will bring together more than 300 high-profile entrepreneurs, government representatives and academics to discuss issues at the heart of China’s digital economy.

Moderated by Ms Ticky Fullerton, Business Presenter, Sky News, the Forum will help you understand the role of the government and policy-makers in digitisation. It will provide insights into China’s digital transformation and the impact of the Internet on its productivity and economic growth as well as the next step for China’s ‘Internet Plus’ Initiative. You will also get an update on the development of Smart Cities, how robotics is impacting on the ‘Made in China 2025’ program and the future and risks of doing business with China in the area of artificial intelligence.

You will also walk away with knowledge which will better equip you to meet market demands, work with Chinese businesses and attract investment.

The Sydney China Business Forum will be held at the Four Seasons Hotel, Sydney, on Monday 25 September.
