The centre of the world is shifting and it is moving towards Asia. Although Victoria sits right on Asia’s doorstep, we find ourselves looking the other way. We need to be better prepared for the future and better placed to grasp the opportunities that a rising Asia offers our State. We also need to respond to the resulting shift of capital and resources to the mining sector, which will continue to put Victoria at a disadvantage. What we need is a dedicated Vic-Asia Unit, to harness the untapped knowledge and expertise across the Victorian Public Service and the wider community, to co-ordinate existing initiatives, and to develop new policies and programs to build an Asia-ready Victoria.

The following video has been produced in collaboration with Melbourne production company Quick Chat Productions:

  1. This is a great idea!
    I think working for and the resources of such a unit would be in high demand!

  2. This is a fantastic idea and will go a long way towards assisitng with rural and regional economies. The Asian market is really critical to nature based tourism in Victoria. Anything we can do to build awareness, skills and understanding will help a lot.

    It will also be the team to be in, both in demand and the group you want to be a part of. A great initiative.
