Future looks bright at Australia-China trade expo
"This (Australia-China Economic Trade & Investment) expo is a terrific opportunity for businesses to outline their services, to reach out and to promote themselves to the Chinese, to attract more Chinese who wish to come here to find out more information," said Virginia Birrell, CEO of the Australia China Business Council.
The 2019 Australia-China Economic Trade and Investment Expo (ACETIE), held from Friday to Sunday in Melbourne, capital of Australia's state of Victoria, has struck an overwhelmingly positive tone, with representatives from both sides confident that bilateral trade will remain strong and continue to diversify well into the future.
The trade relationship between Australia and China is built on world-class industries, such as Australia's agriculture and natural resources and the constantly innovating high tech manufacturing sector in China.
Following the signing of a free trade agreement in 2015, the relationship has continued to grow and Australia is now China's seventh largest trading partner, while China is Australia's largest trading partner.
