Roundtable Discussions with the Australian Strategic Policy Institute


On 15 December, representatives from a number of Government agencies, think tanks and the private sector participated in a series of roundtable discussions in Canberra hosted by the Australian Strategic Policy Institute (ASPI).

Participants discussed the drivers shaping Australia’s international environment, the international risks and opportunities facing Australia and the options for how Australia can shape and influence developments, particularly in our region.

The Australian Government wants the White Paper to be informed by the best possible advice both inside and outside government and to reflect the views, interests and talents of the wider community.

We thank ASPI for hosting the discussion and encourage business and industry groups, NGOs, community groups, the media, think tanks and academia, as well as the public more broadly, to submit views on how Australia should engage with the world.
