Doing Business in Africa: Linking Australian Education with African Opportunity

In 2015, AAA is hosting a fourth international conference on the above theme. This two-day program will provide an intimate setting for participants to discuss existing and future examples of cross border education and training collaboration between Australia and various African countries. It will also focus on emerging themes and opportunities, and aim to directly facilitate relationships to spur the next wave of connectivity and innovation in international education and training.

This year, as well as providing a forum to share information and form partnerships, the 2015 conference will provide a domain to build on this work through networking and discussion of business opportunities. On behalf of the AAA advisory committee, thank you for taking time to give consideration to supporting the 4th International conference this year, we welcome your input and partnership.


Conference Dates: 29th & 30th October 2015
