Wesfarmers talking the talk on expansion

The diversified conglomerate is assessing options abroad, with a focus on China and India.

If Wesfarmers doesn’t finally step outside Australia and New Zealand it won’t be for lack of thinking about it, if this week’s biennial conference in Melbourne is any guide.

Every two years the top 400 or so brass at the company gather to swap war stories and have their minds opened.

Over the next couple of days at Crown Towers the external focus will be very much on China and India and the digital future.
