Lighthouse Lecture Series: China’s Belt and Road Initiative and Sino-Australia Economic Collaboration

The Faculty of Business and Economics welcomes Xue Jinjun (Tatsuto Yukihara), Professor of Economics at Economic Research Centre, Graduate School of Economics of Nagoya University, Japan through the Visiting International Scholar Award (VISA) Scheme to deliver a talk as part of the Lighthouse Lecture Series on China’s Belt and Road Initiative and Sino-Australia Economic Collaboration.

China's ambitious strategy of the One Belt One Road Initiative (OBOR) covers two-third of the world population, one-third of international trade volume and one-third of total GDP of the world. Associated with its New Four Inventions: high-speed railways, electronic payments, shared bicycles and online shopping, the implementation of OBOR will have huge impact to the world economy and lead to a new globalization. This lecture will present the effects of OBOR and discuss in what way, will Australia share the benefit of China’s potential growth while avoiding risk. Consequently, we will try to find a multi learning curve and a win-win result for the Sino-Australia economic collaboration.
