ASEAN Forum 2019, 17 September, Auckland

ASEAN New Zealand Business Council (ANZBC), AUT University and the SEA CAPE are pleased to bring you a full day Forum, with plenty of business focused speakers and networking opportunities.

Doing Business in ASEAN – Digital. Diverse

ANZBC, in partnership with AUT and the SEA CAPE bring you ASEAN Forum 2019

The ASEAN Forum 2019 takes a snapshot of our relationship with ASEAN now, as well as looking forward at the possibilities of future potential and development.  The morning keynotes will set an overview of the ASEAN – NZ political and economic relationship, and how that importantly impacts on the business we do.  The afternoon sessions delve deeper into the sub themes of Digital Connectivity and Diversity. The Digital session will look at how NZ businesses can best operate across and in ASEAN in an ever-changing digital environment. The Diversity theme examines how NZ businesses can make more of the opportunities of diversity to impact and improve on our ASEAN trade.  Throughout the Forum we will ask; how we can work together on a practical level to create strong awareness of NZ in ASEAN and ASEAN in NZ.
