Why we need a Vic Asia Unit (video)

Is Victoria a little too Waltzing Matilda? Should we be learning more more about our Asian neighbours? With the help of Quick Chat Productions we have produced a short video highlighting some of the factors that motivated our idea for a Vic-Asia Unit.

If you still need convincing but you would rather look to Hollywood, we suggest you fast forward to the one-hour mark of the 2010 film Wall Street- Money Never Sleeps. In that scene, Jake Moore, played by Shia LaBeouf, wins a key contract for his company by demonstrating his mastery of Chinese language and culture. While in the real world success is never really this easy, people like Jake will always have an advantage over their colleagues who have little or no understanding of Asia!
