Held Sunday 9 – Tuesday 11 October 2022
The 59th Australia-Japan Joint Business Conference took place against a backdrop of unprecedented global and regional challenges. Governments and people alike continue to grapple with the problems posed by a period of disruption that has exceeded all others in the post-war period. The conference addressed how Australian and Japanese businesses can work together to emerge successfully from the turmoil created by the global pandemic; restore strength and stability to an international system that has been buffeted by the Russian invasion of Ukraine; and continue to seek ways of turning the challenge of decarbonisation into opportunity. We addressed strategies to ensure the vitality and productivity of our economies by creating inclusive opportunities for all.
The 59th conference in Tokyo, the first time we were able to gather in person since 2019, had an amazing energy, proving to be a wonderful forum to debate and discuss these vital questions.
