The White Paper on Australia in the Asian Century is soon to be released.

CEDA recognises that now is the time to arm ourselves with what the White Paper team has been calling 'Asia-relevant capabilities'.

In the second session for the NSW CEO Vision series, CEDA welcomes Michael Byrne, CEO for Linfox Logistics who will respond to changing economic parameters and doing business in the Asian century.

Linfox's Asian operation began 21 years ago in Malaysia and over 70 per cent of Linfox Logistics' 18,500 employees are now located in Asia.

Join CEDA for a stimulating presentation on how businesses and the nation can develop Asia-relevant capabilities through thoughtful review of our immigration policy, addressing labour shortages, investing in education and investment in the resources sector.
