    How to leverage the new Japan FTA

    Case studies and practical actions for Australian and Japanese businesses


    Business Briefing 2015


    2014 saw the Australian Government conclude Free Trade Agreements with each of Japan, Korea and China.  The JAEPA will deliver significant benefits to Australian exporters and service providers entering the Japanese market and to Japanese corporates investing into Australia.

    2015 will be the year in which Australia-Japan related businesses need to look more closely at the operational aspects of the Japan Australia Economic Partnership Agreement and how the detail may be leveraged to unlock the maximum value and potential.

    We have brought together the following speakers with considerable expertise in Australia-Japan business as well as the leveraging of Free Trade Agreements:

    • Akira Imamura, Minister & Deputy Chief of Mission, Embassy of Japan in Australia
    • Shuichi Hirano, Managing Director, JETRO
    • Tom Lees, Origin & Valuation,  Australian Customs,
    • Michael Edmonds, General Manager, Global Marketing, Meat & Livestock Australia
    • Bill Cole, Director, Customs & Excise Group, PwC Australia

    Our guest speakers will provide insight on the potential benefits and opportunities your business may achieve as an outcome of JAEPA starting with a summary of the relevant technical content and following with some  case studies for discussion by the panel.
