By Dr Jagannath Panda

Dr. Jagannath P. Panda is a Research Fellow and Centre Coordinator for East Asia at the Manohar Parrikar Institute for Defence Studies and Analyses (MP-IDSA), New Delhi, India. He is an expert on India-China Relations, China, Indo-Pacific security, Indian Foreign Policy and Korean peninsula.

In his research analysis, The Australia-India-Japan Trilateral Needs a Post-Covid Outlook, Dr Jagannath P. Panda discusses the need to rebuild disrupted global supply chains, restore strained institutions of global governance, and uphold a rules-based order in the Indo-Pacific in the post-COVID-19 order. 

Australia, India and Japan are three powers whose strategic interests have converged significantly in recent years – yet there remains space to turn shared interests into joint actions. In the face of increased Chinese assertiveness and declining US reliability, the Australia-Japan-India trilateral could play an important regional balancing role post-COVID-19. Opportunities for trilateral coordination include in the strategic domain, regional infrastructure initiatives, the technology space and in regional institutions.
