Event description


Date: Saturday 18 August 2018

Time: 9.00am to 5.00pm

Venue: RMIT University, 445 Swanston Street, Melbourne

Building 80, Level 1, Room 80.01.02

Special Guest of Honour

The Hon Alan Tudge, Minister for Citizenship and Multicultural Affairs

Chinese Australians form a large complex melting pot with a range of multigenerational families of the late 1800’s, SE Asian settlers of 70’s and 80’s and new mainland residents over the past 20 years.

The attitudes of local mainstream Australians are changing significantly towards us with the rise of China’s economic and political influence. There are dynamics of positive business and trade development, heavy presence of Chinese tertiary academics, and ongoing geo-politics of the increasing presence of the Belt Road Initiative and South China Seas dispute. More recently the Chinese Australia community is the centre of attention over Foreign Influence, and is referenced by the mainstream media to the developing interplay of the US – Australian defence alliance and the Chinese government actions.

Challenges in current times take us into further responsibility for the state of our community leadership, cooperative forums and action, our needs for the young, middle years and aged sectors, and the development of a long lasting legacy for our community structure and communications.
