While 2018 year marks the 40th anniversary of China’s Reform and Opening up, it is also the year that the Australia China Council commemorates its first 40 years. 5 years after Australia began its engagement with the Peoples Republic of China, the ACC was established as an institution within the Australian Government devoted to promote mutual understanding and foster people-to-people relations between Australia and China.

We discuss the work undertaken by the ACC in agriculture in China, arts exchanges that have seen numerous tours of the Australia Ballet to China, The Age helping to set up the China Daily, the first Chinese English language media entity in the PRC and FASIC, the Foundation for Australian studies in China.
