Francis Wong is a leading South Australian business entrepreneur and company director with 27 years experience in developing positive relationships between Australia and Asia. He migrated from Brunei Darussalam in 1988 to establish his travel business.
Through his successful business he has developed hundreds of influential relationships and is now one of Australia’s most trusted advisers in Asian business development.
His wise counsel, trusted endorsements and valuable introductions have opened many doors for Asian and Australian businesses seeking relationships in each other’s countries. His knowledge, experience and deep cultural insights are becoming increasingly relevant as Australia seeks to participate in the Asian century, and Francis has become an important contributor to many government trade missions.
On Australia Day 2014, he was honored with an Order of Australia Medal OAM for his extensive contribution to business and community service.
