With technology connecting the world like never before and free trade agreements removing barriers to international trade, we are in the midst of a period of unprecedented opportunity.
It’s not all plain sailing however, with a rise in populist political positions in the UK and US, the slowdown in the growth of some of the world’s biggest economies and the ongoing refugee crisis all creating uncertainty.
The 10th World Chambers Congress will see chamber, business and government representatives from more than 100 countries gather in Sydney in September to discuss the issues facing the international business community.
Co-organised by Sydney Business Chamber, a division of NSW Business Chamber, in conjunction with the International Chamber of Commerce World Chambers Federation, the three-day event will cover topics including the internationalisation of SMEs; migration and the impact that this is having on businesses; corporate social responsibility, the role of cities and international trade agreements.
By joining the conversation business representatives have the chance to ensure the future of the world’s economic and political good health.
Confirmed speakers include Consolidated Press Holdings Chairman and Melco Crown Entertainment Deputy Chairman James Packer, Confidere Group CEO Anthony Howard, Dubai Chamber of Commerce and Industry President and CEO Hamad Buamim and Confederation of Asia Pacific Chambers of Commerce and Industry President Jemal Inaishvili.
The congress will run from 19-21 September and be held at the International Convention Centre in Darling Harbour.
