The world is facing unprecedented geostrategic and geopolitical shifts. Australia 360, tailored for young leaders and professionals, takes a close look at the big issues and trends shaping the world around us.

It brings together leading researchers, thinkers and practitioners, to discuss Australia’s political, security and economic realities - its key relationships globally and in the region.

The first session looks at how Australia is travelling in its relationships with Asia’s giants - China, Japan, India and the US.

The second session will focus on how Australia is travelling in its nearer neighbourhood, zeroing in on key relationships in Southeast Asia and the South Pacific.

The conference will end with an interactive, hands-on component delving into the hard choices Australia has to make about its defence as the world rapidly changes.

Diplomats, government officials, business people and students are warmly invited to attend.
