Cooperation across shared interests
Australia-China engagement in education, science, business and culture brings significant economic, social and cultural dividends to both countries and adds value to the bilateral relationship.
Thanks to the foresight of those originally involved, the Australia-China Council's establishment coincided with China's opening up to the rest of the world. The Council has maintained growing engagement as China has risen to become the world's second largest economy. It has supported consistent co-operation across shared interests.
