Australia’s geographic location in the heart of Asia and its history as a Commonwealth nation has resulted in unique linkages to and perspectives on the Indo-Pacific region. Across the spectrum of trade, investment and foreign policy Australia plays an important role in the Indo-Pacific.

A pillar of G’Day USA’s policy program, the G’Day USA US-Australia Dialogue on Cooperation in the Indo-Pacific was held in partnership with the United States Studies Centre and the Perth USAsia Centre on 26 January. Bringing together some of the US and Australia’s leading foreign policy and US-Australia Alliance experts, the day-long program featured a roundtable discussion, keynote address by Australia’s Minister for Foreign Affairs the Hon Julie Bishop MP and a panel discussion for an audience of more than 150 guests.
