 Global economic growth is sustained by inherent innovation-driven comparative advantages among the nations. Artificial intelligence and robotics, internet of things,

smart technologies, biomedical breakthroughs and many other modern-day advances have transformed and enhanced our day-to-day life. It takes entrepreneurship to bring innovative ideas to fruition.

The China Business Forum will focus on Innovation & Entrepreneurship and provide a platform for engagement between community, academia, business, government, and entrepreneurs from all sectors that have interests in China collaboration and market access.

Located in the stunning NeW Space University Campus, the event will be hosted by AsiaLink’s Head of Partnerships and Development, Mr Drew Waters, and feature guest speakers from Alibaba Group Australia and New Zealand, Invest Hong Kong, Westpac, The University of Newcastle and Port of Newcastle, among others.

The Business Centre will then host a masterclass to dive deeper into the topics, with speakers including Elite Robotics laying out a possible trajectory of opportunity for young business people and students to launch into innovation and entrepreneurship locally in the Hunter and into China. Delegates will have an opportunity to participate in a round table discussion about the opportunities and portals into China.

Our lucky door prize will also give one delegate and their guest the opportunity to experience the classic Chinese dance story The Legend of Dunhuang live at The Civic Theatre in October.
