Event description
Australia China Future Forum (ACFF)

About this Event

Australia China Future Forum (ACFF) was founded by the Honorable Dr. Helen Sham-Ho OAM JP, the first elected Chinese Australian Member of Parliament. Mr. Ian Tam, Director of Rudd & Tam Consulting Group was the co-founder and convener.

The vision for ACFF is to provide a high-level platform where VIP speakers discuss significant areas of interests and concerns between Australia and China. In so doing, it promotes a better mutual understanding and foster a more positive bilateral relationship between these two countries.

In 2018, the Hon Dr. Sham-Ho invited a well-respected Sydney Chinese community leader, Mr. Eng Joo Ang OAM, President of the Australian Hokkien Huaykuan Association to co-chair the inaugural ACFF at Sydney Westin Hotel. The Honorable Kevin Rudd AC, 26th Prime Minister of Australia was invited as keynote speaker. The theme of ACFF 2018 was "Celebrating 200 Years of Chinese Settlement in Australia"j, which was to recognize and acknowledge the contributions of Chinese Australians made in this country over the last two centuries and to discuss the bilateral future of Australia and China.

For ACFF in 2019, Hon Dr. Sham-Ho has invited Dr. Jim Harrowell AM, New South Wales Special Envoy for China, to co-chair the event. The theme of ACFF in 2019 is "The fifth Anniversary of China-Australia Free Trade Agreement" (ChaFTA). The ChAFTA was signed on the 17 November 2014 at the Australian Parliament House, Canberra. The Honorable Tony Abbott, the 28th Prime Minister of Australia, and the Honorable Andrew Robb AO, the then former Trade Minister, were represent Australia at the signing ceremony. From China, the representatives were President Xi Jinping of the People's Republic of China and Mr. Gao Hucheng, the former Minister of Commerce. The representatives and signatories of the ChAFTA have been invited to be speakers and participants to the ACFF 2019.

Five years after the signing of the China-Australia FTA, China-Australia bilateral trade h as grown significantly and China has become Australia's largest trading partner and export destination. With the second China-Australia Future Forum being held this year, China and Australia are also about to enter the 47th year of bilateral diplomatic relations. At the same time, the China-Australia Future Forum this year will also form part of the history of the China-Australia relations with the 70th anniversary of the founding of the People's Republic of China and 41 years of China's economic reforms.
