Online - Zoom link via RSVP - Victoria, Australia

                                                             

As tensions rise between the US and China rise, what are the implications for our future security and prosperity? What are the risks of a war over Taiwan? What is the place of AUKUS in all of this? How should we handle this difficult situation?

The Australia-China relationship is our most important foreign policy issue. China is our key trading and investment partner and an increasingly powerful influence in our region.  Amidst growing anxiety, it is becoming difficult to find balanced and contextualised analysis.  

This is an opportunity for Fabians to hear directly from two experts in this vital area and to debate the issues.
