    Chinese geoeconomics and its implications for Australia

    Date Tue, 27 Feb 2018
    Time 18:00 – 20:00
    Location The University Club of Western Australia

    Please join the AIIA WA, the Murdoch University Department of Politics and International Studies, and the Confucius Institute for a panel discussion on Chinese geoeconomics and its implications for Australia with Professor Mark Beeson, Professor Kanishka Jayasuriya, and Associate Professor Richard Vokes

    In what has come to be referred to as geoeconomics, China has become adept at using trade, investment, and economic policies to influence the behaviour of other states in ways that further its own increasingly ambitious foreign policy goals. This panel discussion will explore the efficacy of these policies and consider their impact on other states, especially in Africa.
    The panel will also discuss Australia’s responses to some of China’s geoeconomic initiatives such as One Belt One Road and the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank, and will consider what impact China’s increasing economic influence may have on Australia’s domestic economy and future security.
