Asia continues to witness unprecedented urbanization, with increasing migration from regional areas to cities, resulting in significant environmental changes. Cities across Asia are identifying ways of making their environments healthier and more liveable and implementing a range of green initiatives which seek to improve the quality of air, water and land.

The expert panel will provide insights and strategies for tapping into opportunities with Asia in the areas of liveability and sustainability. The content will include a focus on understanding the current landscape in Asia from an environmental perspective, profiling leading examples of green initiatives and opportunities for local Sydney businesses to engage with and position their offerings to key markets.
