China Matters hosts biannual national meetings to bring together a diverse set of senior representatives from government, business and academia, Australians who are affected by China’s rise in one way or another. Each national meeting addresses a few of the difficult challenges that China’s rise poses for Australia, spanning geopolitics, society and economics. Our aim is to formulate recommendations to strengthen Australian policy toward China.
