A Blossoming Alliance: Australian and Japanese Foreign Relations

  • 23 Apr 2024
  • 6:00 PM - 7:00 PM
  • Online

Diplomatic relations between Australia and Japan were re-established in 1952 following the termination of the Allied occupation and have since continued to grow over the years. The relationship has expanded beyond strong economic and commercial links to other aspects including culture, tourism, defence and scientific cooperation. In 2013 Prime Minister Tony Abbott hailed Japan as Australia's closest friend in Asia and he negotiated a Free Trade Agreement between the two nations in 2015. In 2022, Australia and Japan signed a defence cooperation agreement against the backdrop of an assertive China.

On this, Dr. Michael Vaughan will discuss the ongoing strategic partnership between these two island nations in the Asia-Pacific.
