Widely acknowledged among influential figures in Australia and Japan's government and business sectors, a thriving technology and innovation industry is essential for sustained growth and development of their respective economies. In fact, technology has already emerged as Australia's third-largest sector, trailing only mining and banking, underscoring its significance for the country's future progress. Yet, as interest rates rise, tech investors are reevaluating their strategies, shifting from solely pursuing market share growth to emphasizing profitability and financial prudence in their start-up portfolios.

To foster the growth of the start-up ecosystem in Australia and encourage collaboration between Australia and Japan in the field of innovation, MUFG Bank Ltd, Ashurst, and Artesian in collaboration with the ANZCCJ, Austrade, State governments and JETRO invite ANZCCJ members and guests to join an Australia-Japan innovation seminar on 21 July 2023 in Tokyo.

During the seminar, a panel will delve into the Australian innovation ecosystem and explore key technology verticals such as climate, health, and defense and how the innovation space within the economy lays the foundation for driving prosperity in both nations in the decades to come.

Speakers and Panelists will include:

  • Takahiro Iino - Managing Director, MUFG Bank (Sydney Branch)
  • Jeremy Colless - Chief Executive Officer, Artesian
  • Natsuko Ogawa - Partner, Ashurst
  • Masaki Takahara - JETRO, Outgoing Managing Director of Australian JETRO Branch
