China Matters is pleased to host “Rethinking China” with Jason Yat-sen Li.

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 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 canapés will follow the lecture.

Tickets are limited and registration is essential.

Please note doors will be closed at 6.10pm and no one will be allowed entry after that.
