Opened by Western Sydney University Vice-Chancellor and President, Professor Barney Glover, the forum focused on women entrepreneurs in agrifood businesses and their active contributions to small to medium enterprises (SME) and family business sectors.
Discussions throughout the event focused on broadening women’s participation in entrepreneurial activities; understanding the specific challenges faced by innovative and growing businesses in Australia and Vietnam; and capacity building opportunities for these businesses.
Special guests included Professor Scott Holmes, Senior Deputy Vice-Chancellor of Western Sydney University; Dr Trinh Duc Hai, Consul General of Vietnam for NSW; and Professor Alice Woodhead, Board Member of the Australia-ASEAN Council.
