August Greetings

ACAA 八月祝语

While August is usually one of those quieter periods in the year, we still see a lot going on with our alumni engagement. ACAA is still providing guidance and opportunities for our alumni to learn and grow in China.

 

The nominations for the 2016 ACAA/IELTS Australia China Alumni Awards will close on 31st August.

 

This is the last chance for all alumni to nominate yourself or a fellow alumnus.

 

ACAA Connect is a vital platform for alumni to find important information about jobs and career development as well as to share stories of studying overseas or coming back to China.

 

In August, ACAA's mentor program will be launched on ACAA Connect which will help you find an appropriate mentor or mentee. 

 

This month the ACAA supported the University of Canberra's China Chapter Launch in Guangzhou and AustCham's Career Fair 2016 in Shanghai.

Alumni Profile

校友故事

Dr. Geng Haixin

 

UTS Alumna

 

 

Dr. Geng Haixin was one of the representatives of Guangdong Provincial Government who attended the inaugural Sino-American Seminar on Economy and Technology Corporations in 1988, which was also attended by Dr. Henry Kissinger and the senior management of 12 global 500 corporations.

 

He also played a major role in the construction process of over 20 large-scale infrastructure projects in China. Through financing arrangement, in 1994, Dr. Geng helped a Shenzhen-based private power plant company valued 5 million RMB at that time develop into a sizeable enterprise with 2.5 billion RMB in assets within 5 years.

 

Between 1998 and 2000, Dr. Geng cooperated with the Guangzhou Agricultural Administration (aka GZFDG co. Ltd.) and worked out plans to import Australian-qualified cattle, which illustrated Dr. Geng’s foresight and opened the China market for this sector's exports.

 

In March 2001, he began his further study as a post-graduate studnet at the University of Technology, Sydney in order to combine his 32 years of work experience with advanced administrative theories and best practice.

 

He is now the Assistant President of the Board of MEBO International Group and the CEO of the Guangzhou branch company. At the same time, Dr. Geng serves as the investment advisor for a number of city mayors across China.
