As Australia and China celebrate 45 years of diplomatic relations, it was inspiring to meet leaders in their respective fields participate in the Australia-China Youth Dialogue. The diversity, energy and dynamism of the delegates and speakers reflect the future of our strong, complementary and growing bilateral relationship.
The ACYD is a very meaningful program, providing a fantastic platform for Chinese and Australian outstanding youth to exchange. Abundant topics and diverse experiences in the past 4 days really inspired a lot of spark, which might affect people for whole lifetime in some circumstances.
I truly enjoyed ACYD 2017, which is a fantastic forum for thinking minds, with speakers, delegates, organisers and alumni contributing different views of current bilateral relations in trade, education, research, health and environmental issues, enlightening in embracing a broad vision and big picture of future Australia-China relationships.
China Matters was established to stimulate a realistic and nuanced discussion of China among Australian business, government and the security establishment, and advance sound policy.
