Queensland Business Leaders Hall of Fame Fellowship

The Queensland Business Leaders Hall of Fame Fellowship is awarded annually to support a research project that uses the rich resources of the John Oxley Library and contributes to the creation of new knowledge about Queensland’s business and economic history.

The 2019 recipient of the Queensland Business Leaders Hall of Fame is Rutian Mi 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.

The Queensland Business Leaders Hall of Fame is an initiative of QUT Business School, State Library of Queensland and the Queensland Library Foundation.
