Australian Consul General Innes Willox
to Speak at International Business Seminar

WHO: Innes Willox - Australian Consul General in Los Angeles.

WHAT: Australian Consul General Innes Willox joins UCLA Anderson School of Management Dean Judy Olian for a one-on-one discussion about Australia's economic landscape and opportunities for U.S. businesses in the world's 14th largest economy. 

WHEN: Thursday, May 10, 7 p.m. to 9 p.m., Q&A to follow discussion.

WHERE: Executive Dining Room, Gold Hall, UCLA Anderson School of Management.

BACKGROUND: Australia is a key economic trading, defense, and intelligence partner of the United States and its gateway to the United States is through California, particularly Los Angeles.  A resource-rich nation with a diverse and sophisticated economy, Australia has found favor among American investors for its long-standing stability, openness and market-oriented approach.  Free trade, low unemployment and low inflation are the hallmarks of the Australian economy.  Building business, trade and education links with the United States, as well as the world's emerging economies, are keystones in Australia's continued economic success. 

This seminar is an initiative by JoinedForces, a student body association of the Professional MBA programs at UCLA Anderson School of Management, and is presented in partnership with Advance LA (Australian Professional Network in Los Angeles) and APEX (Asian American Professional Exchange Network in Southern California).
