The Perth USAsia Centre is delighted to invite you to the livestream webinar of a public address presented by the Hon. Anthony Albanese, Leader of the Australian Labor Party.
Australia’s alliance with the US remains our most important relationship. As the US inaugurates Joe Biden as its 46th president, Mr Albanese will join us to discuss the implications of a new era of US leadership on Australia’s regional outlook.
Built upon a shared commitment to international norms and values, the US-Australia alliance supports regional security, stability and prosperity in the Indo-Pacific. Given recent developments in Australia’s key regional relationships, there is no better time to discuss engagement with our most important ally and Australia’s broader interests and concerns in a period of heightened geopolitical competition.
