The 2014 visit by President Xi Jinping of China to Hobart was not only a significant milestone for the state of Tasmania, but a vindication of the three decade long investment in its sister state relationship with Fujian province. With the opening up of markets and investment opportunities through the China-Australia Free Trade Agreement – a question for Tasmania is how it continues to build on the success of the Fujian relationship and what it needs to consider going forward in its China engagement. Australian Consul-General to Guangzhou Dominic Trindade will address these and other questions as part of an event hosted by the University of Tasmania's Asia Institute.
