Foreign investment in Australia and China

A surge in Chinese investment into Australia's resource sector has been making headlines in recent weeks. On 4 July, in conjunction with the Australia China Business Council and Monash University, the Lowy Institute participated in a forum on The Changing Global Financial Environment: Implications for Foreign Investment in Australia and China. The forum, which was also addressed by the Federal Treasurer, the Hon Wayne Swann MP, covered several topical policy issues including the evolving international financial environment; the rise of sovereign wealth funds and state-owned enterprise foreign investment; foreign investment in the Australian resource sector during the current resources boom; and growing Chinese outward investment and the Australia-China relationship. For more information about the conference, please see the Outcomes Report.Malcolm Cook , Mark Thirlwell
