Boardroom Briefing: Tourism's Role in the Asian Century, with Geoff Dixon, Chairman, Tourism Australia
The scale and pace of Asia’s transformation is unprecedented and the implications for Australia are profound. The Australian Government has commissioned a White Paper on Australia in the Asian Century to consider the likely economic and strategic changes in the region and what more can be done to position Australia for the Asian Century.
What is Tourism Australia's role in this, the Asian Century? What implications will the 'Australia in the Asian Century' White Paper have on Australia's tourism industry?
Geoff Dixon, Chairman, Tourism Australia will discuss these issues at an Asialink members only briefing in Sydney.

He sits on the boards of publicly listed Australian companies Crown Limited, Consolidated Media Holdings and Facilitate Digital. He is on the boards of Voyages Indigenous Tourism Australia, the Museum of Contemporary Art and the Great Barrier Reef Foundation, and is an Ambassador for the Australian Indigenous Education Foundation.
