Collective Efforts in Turbulent Times

Held on Tuesday 5 October 2021

The business environment has been buffeted over the past eighteen months by “Three Cs” – COVID-19, China and Carbon Neutrality. These factors pose enormous challenges, but also significant opportunities, for both Australia and Japan. In these times of turbulence, how can we act collectively and draw on our complementary skills and attributes to ensure our businesses, our countries and our partnership emerge better and stronger than ever?

The Conference program included an excellent line-up of high-calibre speakers and we were are delighted to be joined by an array of senior leaders from business and government in both Australia and Japan, who provided in-depth discussion around the theme of Collective Efforts in Turbulent Times.
