Join TSBE at our upcoming SQ Export Hub Economic Update Dinner event sponsored by Western Union Business Solutions.

This dinner is a networking session for our Oil, Gas and Energy Resource sectors and Food & Agribusiness sectors who are looking to capture the new business opportunities made available by the Southern Queensland Innovation in Export Hub (SQ Export Hub).

The keynote speaker is the Currency Strategist – APAC for Western Union Business Solutions with over 17 years experience in the financial services, Steven Dooley. 

Western Union Business Solutions are one of the world’s leading providers of cross-border business payments; they are transforming how businesses can expand globally through one of the largest and most diverse payment networks in the world. 

In 2021 we have seen record low interest rates and significant speculation in money markets globally. Given the current climate, what is going on?

The answer might be that we are at a major inflection point in financial markets. With global growth considerably slower and central banks holding on to interest rates, coupled with speculation on potential rate rises, uncertainty may continue for some time yet.

For businesses with international exposure, this uncertainty can create headaches. But some simple tricks can make managing the risks in financial markets less dangerous – and can even make it easier to take advantage of potential market opportunities.

It is a sit-down dinner with drinks included.
