Event overview

Australian direct investment in offshore businesses is worth more than $540 billion and growing. As the demand and profile of our export products and services change, how can Australian businesses grasp the opportunities and benefits of outbound investment?

In CEDA's first policy perspective for 2017, Outbound investment, we bring together leading thinkers to explore:

  • The current state of play of Australia’s outbound investment;
  • Whether Australia has the right institutional and tax settings to support an outbound focus for business;
  • Where public and private investment should be targeted; and
  • Case studies of successful foreign investments by Australian businesses.

Join CEDA members and guests to explore the opportunities for foreign investment. All attendees will receive a complimentary copy of Outbound investment.
