SEMINAR Japan Australia M&A - Year in Review 2019

Japanese investment into Australia continued to be significant in 2019, with Japan ranking as the largest investor into Australia by deal value (A$21 bn) in Q1-3 2019, and the third largest by deal number (after the US and UK). Japanese outbound M&A has been resilient against a global downward M&A trend caused by geopolitical uncertainties and increased regulatory oversight. So what is in store for 2020?

Our annual Japan Australia M&A Year in Review seminar this year will feature presentations from our Ashurst Japan Client Team on current hot topics and trends we are seeing which will drive deals in 2020, and a panel discussion on "Fresh perspectives on Japan Australia M&A". Joining the panel this year is Liam Eldon, Senior Investment Manager – Japan and Korea from Invest Victoria and Celeste Koravos, Legal Counsel – Corporate Planning from Mitsui & Co. (Australia).

Please note the presentation materials will be available in both English and Japanese. If you are unable to attend the seminar and would like a copy of the presentation materials, please let us know and we will send you a copy following the seminar.

We would be delighted if you could join us for drinks and canapés following the seminar. The seminar is supported by the Australian-Japan Society of Victoria and The Japan Chamber of Commerce and Industry.
