Book Launch: China Story Yearbook 2016: Control : The Perth USAsia Centre and the Australian Centre on China in the World are delighted to invite you to celebrate the launch of the Australian Centre on China in the World's premier annual publication, the China Story Yearbook 2016: Control. Other events...
During this launch event, our panellists will discuss pivotal moments for China in 2016 and the implications these events have on today's Indo-Pacific relations. This panel discussion will be moderated by Professor Kent Anderson. Senator Dean Smith will be delivering a vote of thanks.

‘More cosmopolitan, more lively, more global’ is how the China Daily summed up the year 2016 in China. It was also a year of more control. The Chinese Communist Party laid down strict new rules of conduct for its members, continued to assert its dominance over everything from the Internet to the South China Sea and announced a new Five-Year Plan that Greenpeace called ‘quite possibly the most important document in the world in setting the pace of acting on climate change’. The China Story Yearbook 2016: Control surveys the year in China’s economy, population planning, law enforcement and reform, environment, Internet, medicine, religion, education, historiography, foreign affairs, and culture as well as developments in Taiwan and Hong Kong.' We look forward to seeing you there. 5.15pm: Registration, 5.30pm-6.30pm: Event, 6.30pm-7.00pm: Reception. FREE EVENT
