Event Summary / 活动概况

It’s now accepted that the US has moved to contain China, including financial, trade and national security pressures backed by a huge US domestic fiscal, deregulatory and tax stimulus. (see my January 2018 newsletter)

This US containment comes at a time when Crazy Rich Asians (CRA) has surged up the box office charts. But is this movie the swansong for CRA’s, or just the start of what is to come?

So what’s next for Australia?

At this event (with an Asian hedge fund as a special guest speaker), I will be addressing;

  • Crazy Rich Asian (CRA) lessons for Chinese wealth in Australia. Bananas, globalists and sino-ization
  • The Marie-Antoinettes amongst CRA – the rising role of Chinese philanthropy, not ‘let them eat cake’
  • A bird in hand is worth beating around the bush –how Australia can still win from China’s growth and US alliance pressures
  • Outlook for Chinese capital flows and impact on Australia
  • China’s demographics and its AI/tech saviour. 100-50-25 population decline in 3 generations, and industry specific opportunities for Australians
  • Will China now harden its response to the US – by selling US treasuries and becoming the world’s biggest importer?

Who should attend?

Xi Jinping, Donald Trump, Scott Morrison, Australian and Chinese wholesale investors, asset and property owners/developers, fund managers and business founders, CEOs and executives exposed to China.
