Since 2010 we have brought together the best and the brightest young leaders, passionate about Australia-China relations.


ACYD advances the Australia-Greater China relationship by promoting frequent and meaningful dialogue between young leaders from the two regions. ACYD’s core objectives are to:

  • Develop a community of Australian and Greater Chinese young leaders from a range of backgrounds to create long-term, mutually beneficial relationships;
  • Position young influential leaders to be active, visible and constructive figures in Australia and Greater China affairs; and
  • Leverage ACYD's community to promote awareness and understanding of culture and society in the public interest.

For more information about the ACYD, please feel free to contact us.

I applaud the initiatives that our young leaders have taken to develop China-Australia relations by bringing together key people from both sides to forge deeper understanding and connections for the future.
