Newcastle China Week invites businesses to join dialogues in global innovation

Newcastle China Week will return from 21 to 23 September and this year will invite local businesses to join new dialogues in global innovation.

Presented by the Confucius Institute at the University of Newcastle, the event plays a key role within the community to enhance the diversity of Australia’s intellectual, cultural, and economic relationship with China.

Director of Institution Relations for Greater China, Cher Jones said this year’s theme reflects the opportunities that business has in a global landscape.

“The theme for this year aims to share insight into innovation and entrepreneurship as well as celebrate the Mid-Autumn Festival, which happens to fall on the 24 September,” Cher said.

“The Chinese government has placed a high priority on the acceleration of science and technology in China, such as artificial intelligence, ICT, internet of things, build and construction, health and medical, smart consumer products, and many other areas.

“China and Australia strongly complement each other in terms of the pattern of our unique industry mix and human capital underpinned by innovation and entrepreneurship, so this is an excellent platform for engagement between community, academia, business, government, and entrepreneurs from all sectors that have interests in China collaboration and market access.”

The China Business Forum will bring together high-calibre speakers from Alibaba Australia and New Zealand, AsiaLink, Invest Hong Kong, Port of Newcastle, Westpac Bank and The University of Newcastle on Friday 21 September to explore how innovation has transformed global economic growth markets.

A masterclass facilitated by The Business Centre will dive deeper into the topics and delegates will have an opportunity to participate in a round table discussion about the opportunities and portals into China.

Newcastle China Week also incorporates a Hawker Night Food Market on 22 September and Street Festival on Beaumont Street on 23 September.

The event is made possible due to the strong support of major sponsors Confucius Institute Headquarters (Hanban), University of Newcastle, Confucius Institute, City of Newcastle, Hamilton Chamber of Commerce, Port of Newcastle, The Kent Hotel, Invest Hong Kong, The Bennett Hotel, Ausfeng’s The Legend of Dunhuang and The Northern Star Hotel.
