The power of public-private partnerships

Hear from the World Economic Forum as they join us on a visit to Australia!

As the global economy recovers from the impacts of COVID-19, there are opportunities for countries to respond in a way that positions them to take advantage of this transformation. These include the transition to net zero, the digitisation of economies, and the renewed focus on developing domestic manufacturing capabilities. As demonstrated in Australia’s response to the pandemic, our community is best positioned to thrive when the public sector works closely with the private sector.

Join us as we hear from special keynote speaker, Ms Gim Huay, managing director of the World Economic Forum’s Centre for Nature and Climate, as she reflects on the WEF’s global expertise in public-private partnerships and how like-minded countries are using these partnerships to take advantage of emerging opportunities.

Following Ms Huay’s keynote, a panel of senior leaders will address innovative ways that governments in other countries are partnering with the private sector to move their economies closer to their climate targets, using the transition to net zero as a case study.
