CAUSINDY is pleased to announce that for the third year in a row, Corrs Chambers Westgarth, one of Australia’s leading independent law firms, will be returning to support this year’s conference as a Minor Sponsor. Corrs is committed to forging strong partnerships throughout our region, and in the process driving economic engagement between Asia and Australia.
Corrs has a variety of initiatives to drive such partnerships. In 2013, Corrs joined with ANU to create an Asian Engagement Series designed to equip business executives with the knowledge they need to capitalise on emerging Asian markets. Corrs also has a wide range of partner law firms and international secondment destinations throughout the region, including in Jakarta.
John W.H. Denton AO, Partner and Chief Executive Officer of Corrs, will be joining us again this year as a speaker, having also spoken at the inaugural CAUSINDY in 2013 and also in 2014. John is also Chair of the Business Council of Australia’s (BCA) Global Engagement Taskforce, currently the only Australian CEO who is a member of the International Chamber of Commerce’s ICC World Council Executive Board, and was one of two originating members of the B20, the business reference group of the G20.
John was also a member of the Australian Government advisory panel overseeing the development of the ‘Australia in the Asian Century’ White Paper. He has written a number of articles for the Jakarta Globe about the Australia Indonesia relationship and the White Paper. John looks forward to supporting CAUSINDY.
We thank Corrs for their ongoing support and look forward to working together in Darwin in a few months time.
