18 Jan 2014 – Asia Powering up Global Growth
In January 2014, twenty one Australian business leaders joined Mission Leaders, Think Global David Thomas and Dr Caroline Hong, on an Australia Mission to the Asian Financial Forum in Hong Kong and mission to Qianhai economic zone, Shenzhen Stock exchange and BYD headquarters in Shenzhen, China. The Invest In Australia stand was the only Australian stand in the Global Investment Zone at a forum attended by more than 2000 delegates from all over the world. The Deal Flows sessions were very popular amongst the Project owners, investors and intermediaries from more than 23 countries.
There were several key messages from the AFF 2014. Asia powering global financial growth will have the highest impact on global financial landscape. The US Monetary tapering is seen as the greatest global risk in 2014. About 40% say the economic outlook for 2014 is optimistic. Only 10% feel it is pessimistic.

In January 2014, the Think Global team, CEO and BRIC expert, David Thomas and Asia Australia SME Expert, Dr Caroline Hong are heading off to Hong Kong and China, as Mission Leaders for a group of elite Australians to the 2014 Asian Financial Forum in Hong Kong, followed by a business program in Shenzhen, China and with Hong Kong business leaders, to explore business, trade and investment opportunities. There will also be lots of networking and connections to build and nurture business relationships, all of which are crucial for long term success and happiness in our busy working lives.
We will be proudly promoting that Australia is certainly open for business! Everyday Australians can each do their bit to convey the message to the world that “AUSTRALIA IS OPEN FOR BUSINESS”. Our Australian Mission delegates are strong business people and entrepreneurs willing to invest in themselves to seek opportunities offshore and to connect globally.
Don’t worry if you have missed out on this year’s mission as we are already planning the 2015 Australian Mission program. We certainly would welcome our Australian PM Tony Abbott, AustralianTreasurer Joe Hockey and State government leaders to join our delegation next year at this annual event.
Our ‘Invest In Australia” booth will be a key highlight and focus point in the Global Investment Zone.
More than 2000 international delegates, large enterprise, and Small and medium enterprises will gather in Hong Kong on 13-14 January 2014 at the HKCEC.
