IMPERIAL SPRINGS INTERNATIONAL FORUM
Inaugurated in August 2011, Imperial Springs International Forum was officially established in 2015 with the approval of the Chinese government. It is currently co-hosted by the Chinese People’s Association for Friendship with Foreign Countries (CPAFFC) and the Australia China Friendship and Exchange Association (ACFEA).
Held in the beautiful Imperial Springs International Convention Center in Conghua, Guangzhou, the forum serves as an important platform for people-to-people diplomacy and international exchange. It aims to enhance understanding and expand consensus among parties through discussions on important topics in the economy, politics and culture, thereby facilitating regional and global cooperation.
As an ideal environment for high-level forums, the Imperial Springs International Convention Center has hosted a number of important international conferences since 2011, including the Australia–China Friendship Forum on Economy and Trade, the International Museum and Cultural Forum, the Australia–China Media Forum, the Global Economic Forum, the Global Leadership Summit of SME Leaders, the Going to Latin America Forum, and the 2014 China–Australia Economic Forum. More than 300 international dignitaries, including former U.S. President Bill Clinton, former Australian Prime Minister John Howard, business leaders, scholars and celebrities have participated in these events.
Under the theme of the “Belt and Road initiative – New Opportunities and New Cooperation,” the 2015 Imperial Springs International Forum explored new approaches for security and cooperation in the Asia–Paciﬁc region, as well as global peace and development.
