In this special video address for the 2012 ACYD, ANZ CEO Mike Smith discusses the role and passion that China has played in his life personally and professionally. Moreover, he notes the important role that China has for ANZ's corporate strategy, in addition to the influence it has across many aspects of Australia's economy and society. It is for this reason, that there needs to be, through important institutions and organisations such as the ACYD, an "increased and sustained dialogue, and engagement across all sectors of society" between Australia and China. It is for this reason that the ANZ is proud to partner with the ACYD for this year's dialogue.
