Event description
China Matters is pleased to invite you to “Rethinking China” with Jane Hutcheon on 8 June at PwC Australia, Watermans Quay, Barangaroo.

About this event

China Matters is pleased to host “Rethinking China” with Jane Hutcheon at PwC Australia.

Our 2022 in-person Sydney Lecture Series: Rethinking China features speakers of diverse expertise and background with the aim to inject breadth and depth into the public discussion about the People's Republic of China (PRC).

Jane, the ABC's China correspondent from 1995 to 2001, will describe how she sees China, why she sees China the way she does, and on that basis share her thoughts on what Australia's approach to the PRC should be.

In conversation with Jane will be James Curran, Professor of History at the University of Sydney.

Jeremy Thorpe, Chief Economist of PwC Australia, will deliver the opening remarks.

Drinks and canapés will follow the lecture.

Please arrive by 5:45pm to ensure sufficient time for check-in and seating. Please note doors will be closed at 6:10pm and no one will be allowed entry after that.

China Matters thanks PwC for their generous support of this event.
