Business Envoy is a new bi-monthly publication that connects DFAT with business. It shares market insights and examines the economic and market implications of geopolitical events and trends. The latest edition examines China’s emerging role in regional infrastructure and considers its economic and political consequences.
Business Envoy draws on reporting from Australian embassies and high commissions as well as analysis from DFAT in Canberra. This edition includes insights from Tokyo, Wellington, Shanghai, Cairo, Tel Aviv, Bangkok, Nairobi, Astana, Athens, Mexico City and Singapore.
