With so many distractions occurring around the world (Hong Kong unrest, Taiwan elections, US-China Trade War etc.) our ACSME Roundtable in August generated a lively discussion about the Australia-China relationship and the opportunities
The Australia China SME Association (ACSME) will be hosting its biggest event for 2019, 'Win in China: How to tap into the Chinese market for Growth', this coming 16th and 17th July.

The theme for our April Roundtable was “Exporting to China” and attracted a diverse and committed group of SMEs with an interest in China, either to export their own products or services to China, or to support others (clients, friends, colleagues) in their export journey.
Our ACSME Roundtable in March was, according to all participants, one of the best ever! There was no speaker, theme or topic. Instead, everyone was invited to introduce themselves and their business and tell the group about their greatest challenge in relation to doing business in or with China.
A Happy New Year and best wishes for the Year of the Pig to all of our members, partners and followers.
We kicked off the New Year this week with a highly interactive session of ACSME members and guests in which we asked two questions:
It’s the first day for a young Chinese intern ‘Li Wei’ at a Sydney based architectural firm. Li Wei has achieved steady results throughout his post-graduate studies at a major Sydney based university. As with many international students studying in Australia, Li Wei has had to overcome language challenges.

2. Complexity and costs involved in establishing and running a business in China
