Applications for the 2012 Australia-China Youth Dialogue are now closed. The 2012 ACYD Organising Committee would like to thank all those who applied for this year's dialogue - the applications were of an exceptionally high standard. We are finalising our selections and will be notifying successful applicants shortly. The ACYD will remain a permanent fixture on the yearly calendar, so we encourage all unsuccessful applicants to apply again next year when the dialogue will return to Australia. Moreover, we encourage all applicants to continue their interest in strengthening ties between Australia and China through the Australia-China Youth Association (ACYA), the Australia-China Young Professionals Initiative (ACYPI), or the Engaging China Project (ECP).
