Outbound investment

Outbound investment

May 8
Australian investment abroad provides exposure to international markets, integrates Australia in global value chains and raises the level of engagement of Australian businesses offshore.

Event overview

As developing economies increasingly generate global economic growth, the importance of Asian economies and our connectedness to them has never been greater. Outbound investment facilitates access to these important markets.

Investment offshore and the internationalising of operations has positive implications for the competitiveness of Australian businesses domestically and internationally. Opportunities to create economies of scale, reduce logistics costs and access a rapidly growing customer base can help shift the composition and capability of Australia’s workforce toward more highly skilled jobs and create new roles in the domestic economy.

Join a senior CEDA’s audience from across sectors to hear from those investing in global markets and from thought leaders at the release event of CEDA’s first research report for 2017, Outbound investment.

All attendees will receive a copy of the CEDA research report.
