Han Yu Qiao Competition

On 27th July,I was invited to attend the “Hanyu qiao” competition.This competiton is organised by Confucius Institute.There are students from  ACT,Northern Territory,Western Australia and South Australia.They perform their skill in Chinese “Pu tong Hua “ in singing,poetry and also in the cultural activities,like writing and painting. The competition is in very high standard and the young stidents show their talents to the audience. The overall winner is from WA and he is going to Peking for the world Challenge.Good luck to him.
HKABA-SA is proud to be one of the sponsors of this events and we see that this is to encourage more people in their young age to learn the Asian culture.

It is a great event and successfully run. There are app. 200 attendances for the event and NSW deputy Premier is the guest speaker for the evening.Among other guests we have our National Patron Sir Larence Street, senior government official,Mr. Phillip Ruddock and many more.Cathay Pacific is the leading sponsor for the evening and the award winner is to have Business Class return tickets to Hong Kong plus few nights accommodation.

Although South Australia hasn't received any National Award this time,I am sure that our members will definitely be getting some awards in the future.

This is a very good occasion for us to mingle with other States representatives and exchange business experience with other States.I encourage our Committee members to try to attend next year.
