Doing Business Down Under

Australia is the world's 14th largest economy with a per capita GDP which is level with the four richest European countries.

Australia's economic growth averaged 3.4% for the past 10 years and is predicted to grow at around 4% for the next two. Its proximity to the world's fastest growing region, the Asia Pacific, will greatly assist UK companies looking to expand into this region. When you add to this Australia's very similar culture, legal, accounting and regulatory practices, and a lifestyle the envy of the world - you have an outstanding location for British businesses. The Mining, Oil & Gas, Rail, Ports and Infrastructure sectors have been identified as having a wealth of emerging opportunities. UK companies, with their unique capabilities and expertise, can rise to this challenge and deliver a range of specialist services to these growing economies. Learn how your company can reach new markets by hearing from a wealth of speakers including: • Carrie England, Business Development Director of Queensland Trade and Investment • Stuart Russell, Senior Trade Development Manager of the Government of Western Australia • Antonia Yendell, Trade Development Manager of the British Consulate in Melbourne • Leah Gartner, Trade Development Manager of the British Consulate in Sydney Also hear from two companies about how they have won work down under. For companies wishing to discuss these opportunities further, UK Trade & Investment Commercial Officers will be available for 1-2-1 sessions after the Q&A session at the end of the briefing. They will also advise companies on partnering, joint ventures and how to have a local presence. To register for the event please click the following link http://square5online.co.uk/5H3-ATN/s2.aspx
