Ross Humphreys, President National Federation of Japan Australia Societies

The National Federation of Australia Japan Societies and the Australia Japan Society of Far North Queensland Inc are pleased to invite you to the National Federation of Australia Japan Societies National Conference.

This conference will be held in the beautiful tropical city of Cairns Queensland on Friday September 2 and Saturday September 3. The conference is focused on the future and identifying new opportunities in developing the relationship between Australia and Japan.

The Cairns region is part of Australia’s Wet Tropics and is framed by the lush World Heritage listed Wet Tropics rainforest to the west and north and the Coral Sea and the World Heritage Listed Great Barrier Reef Marine Park to the east. These attributes make the region a world renowned tourist destination. The region is an important gateway to the nearly Atherton Tablelands, Daintree and Wet Tropics rainforest and the outback Savannah region beyond the Great Dividing Range.

The conference is being held at the start of Spring and one of the best times to visit Cairns in Tropical North Queensland with an temperature averages of Maximum 28 degrees and Minimum 18 degrees. It has an average rainfall at this time of 7.6 days for the month.

The conference is being held over 2 days with a Business session on Friday September 2 and our Communities day on Saturday September 3.

The theme for the business session is on new and emerging opportunities between Australia and Japan. Some of the new and emerging business sectors include the service industries such as Health and Medical Research, Education and Seniors Living. These are just some of the industries that will form part of the new business sectors driving opportunities between the countries. We will also be exploring what one of the leading Global companies operating in the traditional sectors are doing to meet the changing world business environment.

Day 2 is about building stronger communities through greater involvement of sister city relationships and enhancing the strong educational links already in place between Australia and Japan. There will be a couple of performances from a school dancing troupe and Japanese Drummers.

The conference will be held at Pullmans Cairns International Hotel for the business session and the Cairns Regional Council auditorium for the Communities Day.

This conference is supported by the Commonwealth through the Australia Japan Foundation which is part of the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade.
