Shanzhen Luo (2018 Delegate)

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.

参加中澳青年对话(ACYD)是一段美妙的历程。这次对话活动既倡导了深层次多维度的思维碰撞,又精心设置了许多令人充分体验澳洲美好和促进团队合作的多彩环节。几天来的思想激荡和头脑风暴,使我对澳大利亚的政治、文化,特别是在各个领域实现中澳合作的探索,有了更为深刻的理解和启发。很荣幸能加入到ACYD大家庭中,拥有不同专业背景的我们来自于五湖四海,不过我们都有着促进中澳友好合作的共同目标。我相信在不远的将来,多种行业互动与多维人际推广之下,中澳关系必将迎来新的发展篇章!

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.
