Towards an Asian Century "Foresight & Strategy in the Asia Pacific" launch in Toowoomba

Set against the backdrop of Australia China Week, with 1500 Australian CEO's gathered in China, Dr. Janson Yap and Professor Luke van der Laan held their “Towards an Asian Century” event "Foresight and Strategy in the Asia Pacific" in Toowoomba. Held on the 11th April and hosted by USQ Student Guild and supported by USQ Alumni, the event was well attended with standing room only and a spectacular speaker line up.

  • USQ Chancellor, John Dornbusch shared his vision of the role of Higher Education in innovating regional Australia
  • The Honourable, Senator Barry O’Sullivan shared his reflections on the Australian national sentiment and approach toward the Asia Pacific region and the potential of regional areas to leverage on being part of the region.
  • Professor Julie Cotter, Director of the ACSBD shared an economic outlook for Australian regions and how linking directly with the Asia Pacific will impact regional economics
  • Dennis Wagner (Director of Wagners – owners of Australia’s only privately owned commercial airport and Australia’s largest Australia only cement manufacturer)  shared the Wagner vision of the future - how regions can gear toward a time of collaboration, co-creation of value, infrastructure innovation, agricultural enterprise and connectivity with the Asia Pacific region. For example, Dennis shared how a Cathay Pacific 747 loaded with fresh beef landed the beef in Hong Kong within 9 hrs and that the beef was served (fresh – not frozen) the next morning in a Shanghai restaurant. This is just one example of foresight connecting regional Australia directly with Asia!
  • Dr Janson Yap, Managing Partner & Innovation Lead (Deloitte Asia Pacific) and coauthor, USQ Professor Luke Van der Laan provided an Asia Pacific perspective of the promise of regional Australia to the broader Asia Pacific Region.
