Governor Alfredo Marañon Jr. will lead the Negros Occidental delegates to the Regional Australia-Asia Chamber Forum in Darwin, Australia on May 2 to 3.
Marañon is expected to deliver a 20-minute keynote speech at the forum, said Januario Rivas of the Philippine Consul General of Northern Territory, Australia in The Visayan Daily Star report.
The gathering will be attended by 250 businessmen and representatives from chambers of commerce in Australia, Cambodia, China, Guam, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, Singapore, South Korea, Taiwan, Thailand, Timor Leste, and Vietnam.
“This is an opportune time to springboard the business matching and look for a counterpart in Asia and Australia,” according to Rivas.
Education and training, human resource and agri-business like aquaculture, fisheries, livestock, and organic farming will be among the highlights of the forum.
Other topics include economic outlook for the Asia/Australia region over the next 10 years, business opportunities and challenges for regional tourism growth, new infrastructure and supply chain developments in our region, improving regional connectivity including transport and communication links, strengthening global entrepreneurship across the region, and opportunities for strengthening regional business partnerships and networks.
