Roundtable Discussion: beyond the elections in Australia and Philippines - next steps for business

Wednesday 1st June 2022 from 5:30pm (AWST)


Panelists: Colin Barnett, Peter Robertson, Fay Rola-Rubzen and Sally Dawkins

Moderator: Anu Rammohan


The Western Australia Philippines Business Council (WAPBC), in partnership with UWA and ANZCHAM, is presenting a roundtable discussion concerning the possible ramifications of the outcome of the Australian and Philippines national elections. The Philippines is one of Australia’s longest standing bilateral relationships. Both nations are not only geographically proximate but have over the last 75 years developed a wide-ranging friendship based around strong political, defence, security, development, education, and economic partnerships.


As the Philippines emerges from the pandemic, there are considerable opportunities for Australia to expand existing trade, investment, and economic ties. The Philippines’ continuing demand for consumer goods and services – particularly technical services, agricultural products, e-commerce platforms, cybersecurity, and online education offerings – together with its ambitious infrastructure investment agenda are synergistic with Australia’s industry capabilities.


Please register to join this roundtable discussion either online (free) or in person ($50 ticket). Please refer to the flyer below for more information.
