Rethinking China with Jason Yat-sen Li



China Matters is pleased to host “Rethinking China” with Jason Yat-sen Li on 21 April at the Museum of Sydney.

Our 2021 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).

Jason, a prominent business and community leader, will describe how he sees China, why he sees the China the way he does, and on that basis share his thoughts on what Australia’s approach to the PRC should be.

Renowned journalist and broadcaster Geraldine Doogue will moderate the event.

The event will feature pre- and post-lecture musical performances. Drinks and canapes will follow the lecture.

We look forward to welcoming you on 21 April. Tickets are limited and registration is essential.
