15. Geoff Raby (former Australian Ambassador to China) - A Relationship Beyond the Transactional

On this episode we're joined by former Australian Ambassador to China Dr. Geoff Raby to take a look at the current state of Australia-China relations and ask whether political bumps in the road affect business engagement and the people to people links between Australia and China. He looks back on his time as ambassador, how to get the relationship back on track and how his extensive personal collection of Chinese contemporary arts mirrors how China has changed over recent decades. .

In addition to a distinguished career with the Depart of Foreign Affairs and Trade, Dr Geoff Raby also holds a number of non-executive, independent director positions with ASX-listed companies. In China, Dr. Raby serves as Co-Chair of Corrs Chambers Westgarth’s China practice. He is also a member advisory boards at the non-for-profit Advance Global, University of Sydney’s China Studies Centre, La Trobe University Asia, and the Foundation of the National Gallery of Victoria. 

Dr. Raby is also curating the first ever all female,Chinese art exhibition outside of China, Sworn Sisters, opening at the Vermillion Art Gallery in Sydney on May 24th, 2018
