ABOUT YP Debates

China Matters hosts a series of Young Professionals debates which strive to create a balanced and dynamic discussion on a controversial topic. These debates are one of China Matters Young Professionals' flagship events: we bring together two young professionals and two special guests to debate a challenge facing the Australia-China relationship from the perspective of both business and government.

Our Fourth YP Debate, was co-hosted by La Trobe Asia, and held in Melbourne on the 11th of April. Its topic was "Is Australia's China narrative sensationalist and short-sighted?". Read more here.
