Anthony Milner, Ron Huisken

    Research output: Other contribution

    Abstract

    - The world does not wait to hear Australian on China; internationally we tend to be judged by how effective we are in Southeast Asia. - In recent decades we have lost the focus and energy that used to define our interactions with this region. This needs to be urgently overcome. - Australia is facing a future of relative decline as its region grows around it. This may however improve its chances of cooperation with ASEAN, and increases the value of ASEAN to Australia. - Australia's support for ASEAN needs to be unambiguous and very public.
