In the lead up to the 2019 Australian Federal Election, we reflect back to the 2018 Leadership Dialogue Forum in Washington DC.
Each year, the bipartisan Leadership Dialogue Forum convenes leaders from government, industry, media and the community to help review and refine the parameters of the Australian-American bilateral relationship. The 2018 Leadership Dialogue Forum was no exception; celebrating “100 Years of Mateship” between Australia and the United States. As we enter our 27th year, we look forward to exploring the ways in which our two nations can preserve and strengthen our bilateral ties, and in particular, the stability of a prosperous and healthy, Indo-Pacific region.
