POST EVENT UPDATE | University of Newcastle Beijing Alumni & Friends Reception
07-05-19 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm
On Friday, July 5th, AustCham co-organised the University of Newcastle’s Beijing Alumni and Friends reception. The event highlighted the long-standing relationship between the University of Newcastle and China, and celebrated the Ma & Morley Scholars at the conclusion of their trip to China this year.
The reception was hosted at our member hotel Hotel Jen, where guests were treated to Hotel Jen’s signature food and drink. Testimonies from the Ma & Morley Scholars, in addition to speeches given by key university officials, were presented to University of Newcastle alumni, current students and friends.
AustCham is proud to be involved in the organisation of this programme, which exposes students to the Australia China business space. The Ma & Morley Scholars at the University of Newcastle represent a range of educational backgrounds, and the scholarship revolves around the values of peace, equity and justice, and environmental sustainability. Highlights from the scholars’ two-week trip to China included visiting Hangzhou’s West Lake, the meeting place of Jack Ma and Ken Morley, and hearing from a range of industry leaders in China.
