4th Asia Roundtable: Australia and India: Our place in the Indo-Pacific
The Indo-Pacific is now recognised as the focal point of strategic rivalry, the new tech race and unprecedented coercion that risks competition turning into conflict. Australia has undergone a strategic reset in recent years and understands that national sovereignty requires international collaboration. Partnerships such as AUKUS and the Quad are a key part of this, along with strengthening bilateral relationships, with India at the top of the list. Justin Bassi spoke on Australia’s foreign and security policies and the importance of the Australia-India relationship for the Indo-Pacific.
