Thought leadership

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 first two reports can be found below, and we hope that the case studies included in the reports offer you valuable insights. We look forward to releasing the third instalment in early 2020.

1. Growing with Asia: Developing Asia Capability in Australian Businesses

Access a free online self-assessment tool 'How Asia Capable Are You? to self-assess your business’ Asia capabilities.

2. Activating Asia: converting opportunities to outcomes with Asia

 

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.
