I first visited China in 2014 and always thought it would be a great place to take students. I was amazed at the culture, history and the infrastructure of the country - and of course, the food. Moreover, I felt it was important for students to be aware of our biggest export partner and the influence China will have on Australian businesses over the next 20 years. Seeing the students appreciate the fascinating culture and history of China was extremely rewarding for me.
