"ACYD far exceeded my expectations. It was a thought-provoking five days that examined issues from politics, economics and law to culture and sports. This encouraged me to broaden my understanding of the Australia-China relationship, and inspired me to re-affirm my commitment to it. I cannot speak highly enough of the diverse range of speakers, delegates and organisers. While all incredibly intelligent and high-achieving, they were also a lot of fun (which lead to much sleep-deprivation as one would often go out in the evenings after a full day of dialogue). The locations selected and events organised were also superb: Capital M Restaurant in Beijing, Taichi in Jingshan Park, Chengdu Panda Base, Tainfu Software Park, the list goes on. I cannot recommend ACYD enough to any young person who has an interest in the Australia-China relationship. You will learn a lot, you will meet amazing individuals, you will make fantastic friends, and ultimately you will be inspired."
