Finance conference a boost for Australia - Frontline - Brief Article

AUSTRALIA'S PUSH to become a global financial centre will be given a substantial boost next year, with a major finance conference and expo slated for Sydney next May.

The Charlton Group, through one of its leading publications Australian Banking and Finance news magazine, has teamed up with AXISS Australia to present the expo, which has been timed to integrate with an APEC Business Advisory Council (ABAC) meeting in early May, 2002. AXISS Australia is the Federal Government agency dedicated to positioning Australia as a global financial services centre in the Asian time zone.

Charlton Group chairman Peter Charlton, a leading initiator of the concept of Australia as a financial services centre, says the conference and expo will be an excellent forum for Australia to spruik its finance credentials to the world.

With the ABAC meeting bringing some heads of government and other leaders of major corporations from the Asia Pacific as well as the USA together in Sydney, it presents a unique opportunity for Australia to tell the world that we have what it takes to be a serious competitor in financial services," he said.

Charlton is one of the most recent members of ABAC, an organisation made up of business leaders from all APEC member states whose aim is to deliver advice to APEC leaders. Australian Prime Minister John Howard appointed Charlton to ABAC earlier in 2001.
