A live poll and interactive analysis unpacking the
comments and key themes of the day.
- Australian leaders need to be well briefed and prepared to navigate economic and strategic dynamics in Asia.
- Our region’s geopolitical, geoeconomic and business landscape is changing at a breakneck speed.
- Asia is fast becoming more strategically contested and more competitive economically, as the regional economies continue to grow and power balance continues to shift to Asia.
- China and the US are locked in an escalating trade conflict, and the United States is formally pursuing a more competitive relationship with China across strategic and economic domains, which puts pressure on Australia and other middle and small powers to balance more delicately its economic and security interests and relationships.
- Elections in India, Indonesia, Thailand, the Philippines and Australia open opportunities and pose new risks in our region and Australia’s own political and economic settings are changing.
- Asia continues to fuel the Australian economy and our prosperity, with six of Australia’s top ten two-way trading partners in Asia and the growing mobility of tourists, students and migrants from the region.
- Australia-China relationship continues to be challenging and a new normal of “bounded engagement” with China is emerging.
