A Year End Message

In an action-packed year, we co-hosted with the Victoria Racing Club Australia’s largest Asian corporate gala event at the Palladium at Crown on 1 November. One thousand international and local executives and their partners packed the ballroom to enjoy a moment of reverence for the traditions of the Melbourne Cup Carnival as well as the spectacular featured entertainment. We were pleased, once again, to act as a conduit to raise net proceeds from charitable efforts for Guide Dogs Victoria.

Special thanks to principal sponsor, Lexus Australia and major sponsors, Pomeroy Pacific, Multiplex, UEM Sunrise and our friends at Pitcher Partners

Exclusive articles and features abound this edition.

The Asian Executive attended the inaugural The Australian Strategic Forum at the invitation of The Australian in Sydney recently where Australian Treasurer, Josh Frydenberg delivered his first formal address about US/China trade dynamics. Much of what he delivered was laudable. As with every successive Australian government, the challenge is how to balance the extremely complex and nuanced relationship between an old trusted ally and a major trading partner – each with two vastly divergent political systems.

The Asian Executive enjoys an excellent relationship with Asialink and is pleased to support its inaugural “40 Under 40” Awards. These awards are a remarkable initiative that will help elevate the status of high-achieving Asian Australians in Australia. We look forward to supporting this initiative into the years to come.

The Asian Executive endorses the Property Council of Australia’s commendable lobbying efforts to see burdensome red tape cut to help future buyers find affordable homes. Various market dynamics have conspired to deflate housing growth, and it is imperative to remove regulatory “friction” with absolute priority as a matter of sound public policy. Housing affordability, also heavily impacted by a dwelling shortage and the ever-growing population as tabled in a detailed report by Oliver Hume.

In this edition, our executive insights cross the diverse yet inter-connected sectors of international relations (Australian Treasurer, Josh Frydenberg), planning (ICD MD Matthew Khoo) and politics (Victorian Liberal Party Leader, Michael O’Brien).

We are now planning our Lunar New Year of the Rat corporate event scheduled for Tuesday evening, 11 February 2020. Subscribe online at www.theasianexecutive.com.au to receive latest updates about this prestigious event.

We wish all our readers a peaceful Christmas period and a prosperous new year ahead.
