G'Day USA US-Australian Dialogue on Cooperation in the Indo-Pacific
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. The 2018 G’Day USA Indo-Pacific Dialogue included a closed-door roundtable discussion followed by a keynote address by The Hon. Julie Bishop MP, Australia’s Minister for Foreign Affairs. An expert panel followed, moderated by President of the LA World Affairs Council Terry McCarthy and featured The Hon. Julie Bishop MP, President of RAND Corporation Michael Rich and Former US Ambassador to Australia The Hon Jeffrey Bleich.
The RAND Corporation in partnership with the United States Studies Centre (USSC) and Perth USAsia Centre hosted the 2018 Dialogue, with attendees including high-level government officials, think tanks, lobby groups, the media, academics and students.
