China’s 13th Five Year Plan, for 2016 to 2020, will be released during the Fifth Plenary Session later this year in the context of China’s ‘new normal’ economic growth. What will this plan mean for Australian business? What business strategies are required for adapting to structural shifts in the Chinese economy?

Dr Geoff Raby was Deputy Secretary in the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade from 2002 to 2006 and Australia’s Ambassador to China from 2007 to 2011. Hear Dr Raby on prospects for the Chinese economy and how this will affect Australia’s medium term economic prospects.

In 2014 the University of Technology, Sydney established the Australia-China Relations Institute (ACRI) as a think tank to illuminate the Australia-China relationship.

Our work is based on a positive and optimistic view of Australia-China relations, capturing the spirit of the 2014 announcement of a Free Trade Agreement and the commitments by both countries to a Comprehensive Strategic Partnership.
