Business analyst Shaun Rein will be staying most of October in Australia, in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane. He is there at an appropriate time, when politicians seem clueless about China, and when not clueless do just the wrong thing.
China is becoming increasily assertive, making businesses and politicians worldwide nervous, although the Australian look more clueless than others. China´s huge investment program One Belt, One Road, where Australia has been left out. Australia became part of the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB), want in the running for a leadership function, but fell out of the boat. The recent refusal to block Chinese investments in the national grid Ausgrid, is only matched by the (temporarily) refusal by the British to allow Chinese investments into its nuclear program.
A good time for Australian business and politicians to talk to Shaun Rein, who can bring you up to speed when it comes to China, and its recent development.
Shaun Rein is the author of The End of Copycat China: The Rise of Creativity, Innovation, and Individualism in Asia and available for additional speeches in October in Australia. Please get in touch if you are interested in having him.
