Second Young Professionals Debate

On 31 August 2017 China Matters held its second Young Professionals debate featuring two YP alumni and two special guests on each debate team.

The two teams debated the question:

‘Should we be nice to China?’

Team 1 on the affirmative: Scott Dewar and Andrew Kiley

Team 2 on the negative: Helen Sawczak and Harry White

Moderated by: Helen Dai

The evening saw a lively discussion between panellists and the audience debating how Australia should approach a relationship with China.

Scott Dewar and Andrew Kiley on the affirmative were voted by the audience as the winning team for putting forward the most convincing argument.
