The Indo-Pacific Executive Development Program is designed for business executives and senior government officials with around 15 years of professional experience who want to better understand geopolitical trends among China, Japan, Korea, Indonesia, India and the broader region. The program provides insights on and deeper understanding of the economies, domestic political systems, cultures, history and nation state interactions of the region and how they relate to business in Australia. This masterclass offers a valuable opportunity to interact with world experts from academia, government and business. Discussion between participants and experts helps develop customised insights for your business, and creates a strong network between executives and leading Asia experts.
