Reflections - Asian Century White Paper | Panel Discussion

In October 2012, the Australian government released the "Australia in the Asian Century" White Paper. The document is aimed to help the country seize the economic opportunities and manage the strategic challenges that would emerge from a resurgent Asia. It laid out a road map to ensure growth in the region that would benefit Australia and called on all Australians to play their part in becoming a more Asia-literate and Asia-capable nation. Ten years on, what has been the outcome of this report and what lessons should be learned as we look towards the future? Given the prompt recovery from the COVID pandemic and the fastest growing economy in the world, the Asian Century is expected to arrive earlier than predicted with an expected $31 trillion in GDP.  This panel discussion will explore the changing dynamics of the region, how Australia could adapt to the changing economic landscape, and how the evolving relationship between Australia and Asia could be strengthened for the benefit of all.

Panel Chair:
* Dr Sandy Chong. A Harvard alumna and Principal of Verity Consulting, Dr Chong is the winner of 2020 Stevie® International Business Awards for Executive of the Year, 2019 Asia's Top Sustainability Women of the Year, and 2016 Singapore Management Consultant of the Year.

Panelists:
* Hon. Peter Tinley AM MLA, former Minister for Asian Engagement speaking on behalf of the WA government. Peter Charles Tinley AM is an Australian politician and former soldier. Peter has been a Labor Party member of the Western Australian Legislative Assembly since November 2009, representing the electorate of Willagee.

* Professor Tim Mazzoral, Winthrop Professor at the University of Western Australia. He is a Qualified Professional Researcher with the Australian Research Society, and the Coordinator of the Co-operative Enterprise Research Unit (CERU), at UWA. 

* BJ Zhuang AM FAIM, Chief Representative at the Shanghai Representative Office for the Fortescue Metals Group.
