Summit 2: Our Role in Our Region

Australia plays an important role in our region. From pressing issues like disputes in the South China Sea, to ongoing trade relationships with member nations of ASEAN, there is lots to get our heads around when it comes to our Southeast Asian neighbours.

Are you passionate about Australia’s place in our region, or just interested to know more? Join us at this one day event that will break down the key issues facing us and our neighbouring nations.

With our next Young Leaders Summit coming up in 2019, now is a perfect time to familiarise yourself with the issues facing our region. This one day event will equip you with the knowledge and tools to understand our nation’s relationship with our neighbours.

Through interactive workshops, you’ll learn how Australia is involved in key issues in the region, and explore our role in them. We’ll look at our relationships with other powerful nations in the region, and the cultural, trade and political ties that link Australia to our Southeast Asian neighbours. Whether you’re an expert or brand new to the topic, there’ll be plenty to learn.

We’re bringing young people together across the country. The Young Leaders Summit will be running in Adelaide, Brisbane, Hobart, Melbourne, Perth, Darwin and Sydney.

The ASEAN Summit Program is supported by the Australian Government through the Australia-ASEAN Council of the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade
