Rutian Mi is the recipient of the 2019 Queensland Business Leaders Hall of Fame Fellowship for his project The history of Chinese business in Queensland.

Rutian’s project will focus on a selection of case studies of long-lasting leading Chinese businesses in Queensland and the significant impact that these businesses had on both the Chinese and broader community. The project aims to both interrogate the collections of the John Oxley Library and help contribute new knowledge to the history of Chinese businesses in Queensland.
