Led by Associate Professor Kathy Walsh, this project examines the imbalance in China’s economic development and financial market development, and how this is mirrored in Australia’s trade and financial links with China which is our largest trading partner in the import and export market. 

The project conducted an in-depth analysis of China’s financial landscape and concluded that although Australia could benefit substantially from the opening of China’s capital markets, it did require some changes in policy and financial architecture and an increase in market awareness.

Research suggest that much of the policy framework is already in place, but for Australia to fully benefit from China’s financial development there are still a number of policy and market issues to be considered. A number of significant policy recommendations have already been adopted and include the appointment of an official Renminbi Settlement Bank in Sydney, and the granting of a Renminbi Qualified Foreign Institutional Investor quota and the issuing of a Renminbi Bond by the NSW Treasure Crop.

The ANU College of Business and Economics, along with other investors, has pledged further funding for the continuation of analysis of RMB internationalisation and its implications for Australia.

With unprecedented economic growth of China and other parts of East and South East Asia, Australia’s regional engagement is more critical than ever. China will provide opportunities, as well as challenges, with potential for growth and future development of Australia’s financial markets, and College staff are involved in research on trade flows and Australia’s links with the world economy and economic activity in our neighbours and trading partners.

The growth and stability of domestic and global economies relies on efficient financial markets and regulation along with robust, transparent, and effective systems. College researchers participate in the debate and development of securities market regulation, superannuation and banking regulation, and the consequences and opportunities of investment flows between Australia and our trade partners.

Globalisation brings an increase in tourism which needs to be managed appropriately. College expertise in understanding the role and impact of tourism on its economy includes research on the creation of tourism space, the role of religious and cultural artefacts and their influence on the tourism experience, destination marketing, and tourism and social media.
