Op-Ed by Australian Foreign Minister Julie Bishop: Australia’s prospering partnership with ASEAN
On a recent visit to South East Asia, I was reminded of the strength of Australia’s partnership with the countries of ASEAN – the Association of Southeast Asian Nations.
In Malaysia I met some of the 300,000 alumni of Australian universities, many now serving in key government and business positions.
In the Philippines I saw first-hand our joint relief effort in the wake of Typhoon Haiyan and was joined by hundreds of school children to celebrate a new $150 million Australian initiative for basic education needs.
In Vietnam, I was reminded further of our cooperation with projects such as the Australian-Asian Development Bank co-funded Cao Lanh Bridge that will connect communities in an economy of nearly 90 million people.
