About the event

There has never been a better time to do business down under. Entering its 24th year of uninterrupted annual growth, Australia has a strong, stable and growing economy which has weathered the global financial crisis well. This looks set to continue too with average annual real GDP growth of 3% forecasted between 2015 and 2019.

A common language and similar culture, together with comparable business, legal and regulatory practices means you’ll feel at home immediately when doing business in the market.

The country also has well established trade networks in the world’s fastest growing region, the Asia Pacific, providing a springboard for UK companies wishing to expand there.

Join us at this event to discover how to make Australia a land of opportunity for your business. Funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF), the evening will include:

  • Expert advice, latest market developments and key considerations for doing business in Australia

  • An introduction to the business environment in the States of Victoria and Western Australia

  • An insight into the development activity in each State presenting opportunities for engagement with UK companies

  • First hand experiences of entering and successfully doing business in the Australian market from a regional company
