Lecturer releases two books on the nations relations with Asian trading partners

Wednesday, 10 August 2011

Lecturer from the Faculty of Business and Law, Dr Ian Austin has recently released a book entitled: Australia-Singapore Relations: Successful Bilateral Relations in a Historical and Contemporary Context.

The book consists of a range of works from Australian and Singaporean authors on diplomatic, strategic, commercial, aviation, cultural and social relations, and education and work experiences. It also includes a significant postscript on the proposed ASX-SGX merger that was rejected by Treasurer Wayne Swan earlier in 2011.

Australia-Singapore Relations: Successful Bilateral Relations in a Historical and Contemporary Context was published by ‘Select Books’ Singapore and the Faculty of Business and Law through a Strategic Research Funding Grant.

A second book is due to be launched in August entitled: Chinese Investment in Australia: Unique Insights from the Mining Industry. Co-authored with former ECU academic, Xueli Huang, the book examines the growing complexity of the Australia-China commercial relationship, primarily in the mineral sector, and examines corporate decision making at both the micro and macro level, as well as the political-economy ramification for Australia in the development of such a relationship.

Collectively the works provide important insights into Australia’s commercial, social and cultural relations with vital Asian trading partners.
