By the end of the year Australia is expected to have a new White Paper charting its course in the Asian Century. Following its work with the White Paper Taskforce, the AIIA has chosen to set the topic for its National President's Forum as Australia in the Asian Century.
Bringing together international experts and representatives from government, academia, business and the media for roundtable discussion, this all-day event will focus on the three pillars of Australia’s engagement with Asia: economics; strategic and political issues; and education, culture and society.
