The fourth Australia-China Youth Dialogue (ACYD) will be held from 24 to 29 September in Canberra and Melbourne. ACYD is a premier bilateral youth forum that brings together emerging Australian and Chinese leaders in a week-long exchange of ideas and perspectives on the broad range of bilateral interests.
The Australia-China Council continues to be a major founding partner of the Dialogue.
This year, the Dialogue will be addressed among many others by The Hon. Kim Beazley, Australian Ambassador to the United States, Professor The Hon Gareth Evans AC QC, Secretary of the Department of Defence, Dennis Richardson AO, ACC Deputy Chair, Mr Kevin Hobgood-Brown, Secretary of the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, Peter Varghese AO.
The theme of 2013 Dialogue is ‘Asia Dream’ through which the delegates will explore Australia’s political, economic, cultural and security relationship with China.
This year’s ACYD will also involve a creative partnership with the Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC) International. During the Dialogue the delegates will visit the ABC Centre and develop their own Australia-China content to be shared on digital and mobile platforms with audiences in Australia and China.
