essay competition 2014

The China Studies Centre essay competition aims to promote greater knowledge and mutual understanding to strengthen relations between Australia and China.

In the lead-up to the 2014 Sydney China Business Forum, we invited students and young professionals to submit an essay answering the question: “What are the main implications for the financial services sector surrounding the Australia-China Free Trade Agreement?”

The Demystifying Series of reports provide comprehensive analysis of China's outbound direct investment (ODI) into Australia. They are based on the dataset compiled by a joint University of Sydney and KPMG team and covers investments into Australia made by entities from the People's Republic of China through M&A, joint venture and greenfield projects.


Policy papers

The China Studies Centre has established a policy papers series to examine the role that China plays, and might continue to play, in key areas. In this series, international experts set out ideas about China in an accessible form for as wide an audience as possible.
