Panel Discussion “Assessing the Post G20 Agenda for Australia-Japan-U.S. Trilateral Cooperation”


Recent meetings of APEC, the East Asia Summit, and the G20 have provided opportunities for Prime Minister Abe Shinzo, Prime Minister Tony Abbott, and President Barack Obama to build upon a growing number of bilateral and trilateral meetings between leaders and officials in Japan, Australia, and the United States. In addition to the meeting of the three leaders in Brisbane this November 16, Prime Minister Abbott’s visit to Japan in April and the conclusion of the Japan-Australia Economic Partnership Agreement negotiations were followed by a high profile visit by Prime Minister Abe to Australia, including a landmark speech before a joint sitting of Parliament. On the trilateral level, not only have the three nations worked closely together in negotiations over the Trans-Pacific Partnership, but fora such as the U.S.-Japan Security and Defence Cooperation Forum (SDCF) and the U.S.-Japan-Australia Trilateral Strategic Dialogue have provided venues for consultation and coordination on issues of shared interest in the region and globally.
