Hundreds of guests from Perth’s Asian community and beyond were offered a refreshing cultural experience for the annual Chinese New Year Ball.

Taking place inside the Crown Ballroom, more than 900 people were in attendance for the black-tie formal event which provided members and guests a platform for corporate exposure and networking on a prestigious and international scale.

Some of the high-profile guests included Prime Minister Anthony Albanese, WA Premier Roger Cook and the president of the WA Chinese Chamber of Commerce Tony Chong.

The event, led by the Western Australian Chinese Chamber of Commerce and co-hosted alongside Chung Wah Association and the Australia China Friendship Society, also provides a voice for WA’s Chinese business community.
