Behind the headlines - 2018 APEC CEO Summit

29.11.2018 Kristina Koprivica

ECA CEO, Alina Bain, attended the summit in Papua New Guinea in mid-November to champion Australian SMEs and take the temperature of attending APEC leaders, CEOs and global experts on vital issues impacting Aussie businesses. 

While Alina attended as your representative, it was an emotional trip home to her country of birth, proving again the interconnections in the region and our need to meet and work with our regional neighbours.

As with many summits, the headlines are only snapshots of top line issues and insights. Drilling down on the debates and discussions over the course of the event is what helps the ECA and our SME exporter community gain greater insights coming down the line from world leaders and innovators, globally, and across the region. Key discussions on the table for Australian companies were the future of globalisation and the digitisation, innovation, disruption and inclusive growth in the region.

The ECA will help you decode these agenda items and give you firsthand accounts on the outcomes of these discussion and what this could mean for Australian businesses, SMEs and exporters. Being in the room is imperative to understanding the outlook of our regional decision makers and we want to pass that insight on to you!
