    The ATBC was proud to be a joint partner in the inaugural ASEAN Business Council's Networking Event held in partnership with Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, and the NSW and Australian Governments at the NSW Trade and Investment Offices in Sydney.

    Approximately 70 people attended the event from a wide range of backgrounds that included business, commercial, diplomatic, academic and trade attendees. Each of the 4 Business Councils gave short updates on their respective areas, as did the NSW and Australian Governments. A particular highlight was a presentation given by Dr Sandra Seno-Alday from the University of Sydney Business School, on various growth trends across the ASEAN Business Sector. The respective Business Councils agreed to capitalise on the success of this event with another event in the future.
