Our Chamber President, Vincent Lim, and Soul of Chinatown’s Kevin Cheng were invited to speak to students from the Macquarie University’s Global Leadership Program at the Darling Square Library on 24 March 2023.
Vincent gave the students an outline of the history of Sydney’s Chinatown and a presentation on what makes Haymarket such a great place to live, work and play and the various initiatives that the Chamber undertook to support the area during the COVID-19 pandemic. He also spoke on how the Chamber engage with the various levels of government and other associations and community organisations. Kevin spoke to the students about the significance of Sydney’s Chinatown and the bright opportunities that lie ahead.
We understand that, after our talks, the students had a tour of Chinatown and also treated themselves to a nice lunch at Thai Town.
The Chamber thanks Ms Courtenay James, the University’s GLP program advisor, for giving us the opportunity to engage with her students and look forward to their future visits to Haymarket.
