Meeting ACYD is one kind of fate. Amazing and Fantastic.

ACYD 2018 was diverse and dynamic, which brought macro- and micro- perspectives and created an open and pleasant atmosphere to have in-depth discussions on various and important issues in the past four days. I did not realize how much I enjoyed ACYD until I recalled my endless happy memories with my friends back to China. I strongly recommend that more young talents should join ACYD family to grow people-to-people links between our two countries.

The Australia China Youth Dialogue provides a wonderful platform for young leaders from across the Asia-Pacific to come together and discuss the ever evolving bilateral relationship enjoyed by Australia and China. The 2018 program was thought provoking, relevant and was presented by eminent leaders in their respective fields. The ACYD will stay with all delegates, long into the future, as it fosters connections between like-minded people and that is its greatest legacy.

This report chronicles our further progress in nurturing aspirational exchanges between emerging and current youth leaders from Australia and Greater China. The ACYD Board and Management Team worked energetically over the year to bring together another outstanding group to explore future directions, challenges and possibilities at the eighth ACYD, held in Beijing from 15-18 September 2017.
