Asia capability reports

Asian Business Banking is committed to deepening our involvement with the local community, and in developing a distinctive proposition for Asian businesses in Australia. We are working with Asialink Business on a series of thought leadership engagements to explore key business capabilities required by Australian businesses and corporates, to successfully access and capitalise on the opportunities afforded through the growing middle class of Asia.

Our latest report; Winning in Asia: Creating long term value seeks to uncover how businesses, investors and policy makers can succeed in the region.

Economics seminars in Mandarin

We are also committed to supporting the growth and financial well-being of the Asian business community in Australia. Back in 2018 we delivered a large-scale Economics update seminar in Mandarin – CommBank’s first economic briefing for business clients in an Asian language. As clients networked, and gained valuable insights from this seminar, we have continued this initiative in various locations across Australia.
