Ambassador Jan Adams, Australia's Ambassador to China, visited the Perth USAsia Centre and conducted an invite-only roundtable luncheon on her insights into the future of Australia - China relations.
- The 19th National Congress of the Communist Party of China (CCP) is a historic landmark in modern China's national history. The 19th National Congress marked the end of President Xi Jingpi's first five year term as General-Secretary of the Party. It also marks a time when China has become a wealthier and more powerful country.
- China provides strategic opportunities for Australian businesses. Following the 19th Party Congress, the CCP's plan will increasingly focus on "quality growth over quantity". The CCP's policy approach has increasingly focused on issues such as quality of life and the environment. Naturally, this allows Australian businesses to partner with China's emerging needs such as healthcare, education, agriculture, resources, tourism and more.
- Australia and China are natural partners in the maintenance and stability of the Indo-Pacific. Australia and China have a prosperous relationship through the foundations of rule of law and open market liberalisation. Australia's diplomacy will continue to build on this, while broaden its strategic horizons towards other countries such as Indonesia, India, Japan and the ASEAN bloc.
