On Thursday the 13th August, Tom Luckock, AusCham Beijing’s Secretariat and a partner at Norton Rose Fullbright, was interviewed on CCTV regarding a recent economic dialogue held in Canberra.
Tom highlighted the difficulties present around implementing the Australia and China FTA, but emphasized the importance of the dialogue in addressing potential problems within the agreement and ensuring issues were alleviated prior to implementation.
The interview also outlined the exciting opportunities arising from the One Belt One Road Initiative (OBOR) particularly in regards to stimulating demand for Australian iron ore and minerals, as well as the opportunity for Chinese and Australian companies to combine their expertise and conduct projects within the OBOR region.
Additionally, the interview described the opportunities presented by recent government initiatives to develop Northern Australia and the heightened ability that would be available to develop large infrastructure projects within the region.
