Career path and highlights

Victor Xu plays a vital role in the investigation of dumping and countervailing complaints in Australia, helping to protect Australia's interests.

"I provide advice to industry and foreign governments and maintain Australia's policy and legislative framework for anti-dumping and countervailing. One benefit of my often challenging role though, is that I get to travel extensively and have the opportunity to take a glimpse of various operations of a business, both at home and abroad,’ Victor said..

Originally from China, Victor said that he chose to undertake study at Deakin due to the practical nature of his courses of choice and most importantly, to help further develop his business skills and expertise.

"The Burwood campus was convenient, the facilities were good and the course had a good combination of theory and practice. Deakin offered excellent academic teaching staff, advanced technology in teaching, flexible assessment methods and had valid and reliable research output."

"I had spent most of my previous career in international trade and business where I set up a joint venture with some Japanese partners to produce stainless steel pipes and joints and then sell these in the Chinese market and export overseas. Later I managed a three star hotel in Melbourne - which was how I came to Australia. I think my studies helped me to reconcile all these experiences into a related area and certainly assisted me in obtaining my current job with ACS," he explained.
