The Indo-Pacific is among the most dynamic and diverse regions in the world with the potential to become the epicenter for innovation, trade, cooperation, and prosperity in the 21st century. The likelihood of such a future is directly linked to the ability of the region to address increasingly complex issues by investing in partnerships and promoting security and stability. By utilizing its close ties with partners and its commitment to promote a resilient and cohesive community, Australia is primed to advance the shared vision of a new Indo-Pacific.
