Celebrating the Centre at 10
The Perth USAsia Centre, a leading independent Australian think tank, is celebrating 10 years of strengthening Australia’s relationships with the Indo-Pacific and the United States – educating and empowering its community to better understand the critical issues facing our region.
The Centre was established in Perth in 2013 to capitalise on the wealth of strategic thinkers based in Western Australia, providing a place for leading original research and international engagement. Since June 3, 2013, the Centre has published over 350 research reports and articles and hosted over 750 events in 25 cities across 10 countries, engaging a world-class strategic affairs community of over 27,000 people.
Colin Barnett was the Premier of Western Australia when the Perth USAsia Centre was formed in late 2012. He shared his memories of the Centre’s official opening at The University of Western Australia, where he spoke alongside former United States Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
“I think the Centre has been an outstanding success in the relationship with America and the emerging and growing relationship with Asia, and it’s placed Perth and The University at a high level,” he said.
“The work done from research, on seminars, public debate and media coverage has been simply superb, quite outstanding.”
