The First Ten Years - ACYD launches book to commemorate its 10th anniversary

In 2019 the Australia-China Youth Dialogue (ACYD) celebrates its tenth anniversary. Since 2010 the ACYD has developed into a community of 300 Australian and Greater Chinese young leaders from a range of backgrounds. Increasingly, members of the ACYD community are moving into positions of influence across all sectors of society in Australia and China. As they do so, it is the hope of the ACYD team that they will continue to be active, visible and constructive figures in Australia and Greater China affairs.

We hope you enjoy the memories shared in this book.
