Award ceremony: 40th anniversary of Australia-China diplomatic relations essay competition

13 November 2012

The China Studies Centre is hosting an essay competition award ceremony to celebrate the 40th anniversary of Australia-China diplomatic relations.

The Governor Her Excellency Professor Marie Bashir AC CVO, also Chancellor of the University of Sydney; and the Vice-Chancellor of the University Dr Michael Spence will both speak at this occasion.

As part of the celebrations of 40 years of diplomatic relations, the China Studies Centre at the University of Sydney held an essay competition for young people to engage with each other and thereby strengthen mutual understanding and ensure future collaboration between the two countries.

The competition was generously sponsored by William Chiu, Chairman of the Australian Council for the Promotion of Peaceful Reunification of China, and supported by Australia's Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade and the Australian New Express Daily.

The China Studies Centre would like to thank the sponsor and supporters of the competition, the judges, all those involved in its organisation and, last but by no means least, the essayists whose participation highlights the continuing good relations between the people, governments and societies of China and Australia.

Following the ceremony, refreshments will be served.
