2019 Annual Address: Hugging Bears

In ACIAC's  inaugural Annual Address, its Adjunct Professor Carrillo Gantner AC spoke about the history of Australia-China relations and shared his experience in the cultural exchange between Australia and China. Professor Carrillo Gantner AC is confident about the benefits of Australia-China cultural exchange. He said: “we will enjoy a rich culture that still draws its primary sources from Europe, from English classics such as Chaucer, Shakespeare and the King James Bible, but now enriched with other colours and textures from Chinese and Indian cultures and classics, the Peony Pavilion, and Dream of the Red Mansion, the Ramayana and the Mahabharata.”
