About the Summit

The Australia-China Young Professionals Initiative (ACYPI) was proud to present the inaugural Global Professionals Summit 2023. This groundbreaking event was conceived to foster stronger connections between various ACYPI chapters and provide our members with an opportunity to enhance their leadership capabilities within their own chapter and the wider Australia-China community. As the first Global Professionals Summit and the first ‘national’ ACYPI event, we aim to establish this Summit as a recurring event in the ACYPI calendar.

The 2023 Global Professionals Summit was meticulously organised by a dedicated volunteer Project Team, comprising members from the Adelaide, Brisbane, and Melbourne chapters. With delegates attending from across Australia and even from Beijing and Shanghai, the Summit was a diverse and enriching experience for all participants.
