Inaugural IPAA WA Espresso Series: International Perspectives China

Institute of Public Administration Australia WA

Event outline

Session 3: China

Over a series of four short, sharp morning seminars, our inaugural Espresso series will inspire your practice as a professional public servant. Like any good espresso, it will give your morning a good kick start.

Test your assumptions as to what a public service looks like and how it should operate. For this inaugural series we have invited presenters with expertise in either the public administration or policy environment of the USA, Indonesia, Singapore and China to provide an overview of how these systems work, their structure, their strengths and weaknesses and issues affecting the direction in which they are heading. 

Where you may often look to similar jurisdictions such as the UK, NZ and Canada for inspiration there is much to be learnt from the dissimilar services operating elsewhere.

The series will be expertly facilitated by a senior public service leader, Dominique Mecoy EMPA, to ensure that key points relevant to you as a public servant in Western Australia are central to the conversation.

Register today for the entire series at a very competitive price or simply sign up for the first session on 21st February.
