The rise of Asiaâ€™s two giants, China and India, is forcing Australia to re-examine its understanding of the regional order that has existed since the 1940s. India is becoming an ever more important element in the Indo-Pacific strategic balance. Australiaâ€™s security relationship with India has been growing much closer over the last decade, driven by concerns about China as well as a host of other shared interests. In the long term, India is likely to become a key security partner in the Indian Ocean and possibly one of Australiaâ€™s most important security partners in the Indo-Pacific region.
