This Guanxi event will take on the style of an Arm Chair Chat with the Hon Pierre Yang as the Guanxi Chair explores the key role that Relationships have played in Pierre Yang’s life from his student days, his own business and now his Parliamentary career .
Pierre Yang, originally from Harbin, Heilongjiang, China; came to study in Australia in 1998 (when he was 15). In 2001 Pierre joined the Labor Party as an overseas student. Then in 2008, Pierre graduated from UWA with an Honours Degree in Political Science and in 2013 he established his own Law Firm - Sino Legal. The same year saw Pierre graduated from the Royal Military College - Duntroon.
During the period of 2013 to 2017 Pierre served the community of the City of Gosnells, being the first City of Gosnells Councillor of Chinese heritage. Pierre was then elected to the Western Australian Legislative Council, as a Labor Member for the South Metropolitan Region. His term began in May 2017.
This will be a unique event that will give a great insight into Guanxi.
