Time:5.45pm for a 6.15pm start until 8.00pm
Venue: Melbourne CBD, TBC

With challenges ahead for the Trans-Pacific Partnership and rising tension over the South China Sea, Asia’s dynamic future is under strain. Is there a role for Canberra and like-minded neighbours to strengthen Asia’s order, or will a competitive US-China relationship increasingly dominate business and politics across the region? This discussion will address the major strategic trends shaping Asia, the challenges for Australia and the opportunities for engagement with regional business and governments.

Daniel Twining is director and senior fellow for Asia at the German Marshall Fund (GMF) of the United States, where he leads a 15-member team working on the rise of Asia. This includes major research initiatives on China, Japan, India, Southeast Asia, the Trans-Pacific Partnership.

This exclusive event will include a moderated Q&A with a panel of experts.

- Grant Dooley, Executive Director and Head of Asia Business Group, Hastings Fund Management
- Melissa Conley Tyler, CEO, Australian Institute for International Affairs
- Dr Sow Keat Tok, Deputy Director of the Centre for Contemporary Chinese Studies and Lecturer at the Asia Institute, The University of Melbourne
