(L-R): Anthea Roberts, Darren Lim and Benjamin Herscovitch

Navigating the future Australia-China relationship in the post-election context

26th June 2022

On 22 June, RegNet academics Anthea Roberts, Darren Lim, and Benjamin Herscovitch delivered two workshops for the Sydney and Melbourne business communities. These workshops explored how Australian businesses can navigate the complexities of the future Australia-China relationship.

Delivered in partnership with the Australia China Business Council and with the generous support of a grant from the National Foundation for Australia-China Relations, themes explored included the forces straining globalisation, how Australian exporters responded to China’s trade restrictions, and the constraints on a normalisation of Australia’s political relationship with China. Involving business leaders, government representatives, and academic experts, these workshops featured frank and productive discussion on both bilateral ties and the changing geoeconomic landscape globally.

The Sydney workshop was conducted in the form of a closed-door business breakfast and dialogue, with participants including a range of senior businesspeople and former political leaders. The Melbourne workshop was open to the public and drew in a broad range of businesses and individuals with exposure to and deep interest in the Australia-China relationship. Both workshops showcased the depth and breadth of RegNet’s interdisciplinary expertise across geopolitical, economic, international relations, international law, and other fields. These workshops examined the forces driving the current geoeconomic clash of security and economic factors and explored possible future ramifications for Australian businesses and government policy.
