Event description
Let's Celebrate Together the Success of Alumni in China and Australia.

About this Event

The Australia China Alumni Awards celebrates the success and achievements of selected Chinese alumni who have studied at Australian universities and Australian expatriates living in China. Over 700,000 Chinese students have studied in Australia since the early 1970s and this large alumni cohort plays an important role in many sectors across the Chinese economy and society and in enhancing the deep people to people relationships between Australia and China.

The Australia China Alumni Awards have been running for 12 years and are organized by the Australia China Alumni Association (ACAA), with support from our Patron, H.E. the Australian Ambassador to China. This year’s sponsors are the Australian Global Alumni program, PWC You Plus and Austrade.
