Australia : Japan - The Road Ahead
Mr Sumio Kusaka, Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary to Australia

Japan is Australia's second largest trading partner and regarded as its closest ally in Asia.

There are significant challenges to both nations posed by the global economy, the need to realise agreements that will maintain international trade and growth, ensuring effective international institutional arrangements and by a range of regional trade and security issues, including nuclear tests by North Korea and the territorial dispute in the South China Sea.

How is the Japan : Australia relationship currently perceived by Japan, in both an international and regional context, and also in the wake of the Australian Government's decision on the purchase of submarines?

This event is co-hosted by the Tasmanian Branch of the Australian Institute of International Affairs and the Asia Institute Tasmania
