The Changing Dynamics of the Australia-China Economic Relationship

6 September 2016 - 10:30 to 12:00

Chatham House, London


Peter David Drysdale, Emeritus Professor of Economics and Visiting Fellow, Crawford School of Economics and Government, College of Asia and the Pacific, Australian National University
Chair: Paola Subacchi, Research Director, International Economics, Chatham House



Professor Drysdale will present Partnership for Change - the Australia–China joint economic report which is the first major independent joint study of the bilateral relationship supported by both national governments. He will draw policy conclusions to guide the development of bilateral economic relations that include an Australia–China comprehensive strategic partnership for change, an Australia–China commission and an Australia–China basic treaty of cooperation.

Participants will discuss the strategic importance of the Australia-China economic relationship and how it will evolve over the coming years as China transitions to a more service- and high-value manufacturing-oriented model of growth. The Australia-China economic relationship is one of the most important in the Asia-Pacific region and this report will provide the latest insights from practitioners and researchers on how it will evolve in the years ahead. 

Attendance at this event is by invitation only.
