Last week, Bond University was honoured to welcome academic and business professionals from around the globe to our Gold Coast campus to share their expertise and thoughts on the role of Confucianism in modern society. The symposium was successful in identifying opportunities, challenges and new insights on the theme of Confucian thought and contemporary life. Topics stimulated discussion on all facets of modern society including business ethics, the role of language and the various strands of Confucian thought.

The Bond University Centre for East-West Cultural and Economic Studies would like to extend a grand thank you to everyone who attended and helped to make our 2015 International Symposium: Confucianism and Modern Society a very successful event! We look forward to providing you with more information to come in regards to the 2016 Symposium in Beijing to be hosted by Beijing Foreign Studies University.

Following the Symposium, attendees were given the opportunity to attend a cultural experience at Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary. Hand feeding kangaroos and watching an Aboriginal performance were among the major highlights. The two-day event concluded with 360 degree views and dinner shared among newly made friends and renewed acquaintances at the famous Q1 in Surfers Paradise.
