What is ACELS 14?
The Australia-China Emerging Leaders Summit (ACELS) is ACYA’s signature event, uniting and enriching a new generation of Australia-China literate leaders.
ACELS 14 will be held online across four days over two consecutive weekends. Participants will discuss highly topical issues in the Australia-China space as part of the intensive four-day program, ultimately fostering a deeper understanding of our two nations and genuine people-to-people connections.
Participants will be given the unparalleled opportunity to engage with business, diplomatic, cultural and academic leaders in a variety of panels, workshops, and seminars, as well as an array of cultural and social events.
Covid permitting, there will also be offline events and networking opportunities in both Australia and China during the weeks of the Summit.
