On Friday, 18 July the Lowy Institute was honoured to host a speech in our Distinguished Speaker Series by the Minister for Foreign Affairs, the Hon. Stephen Smith MP. The focus of the Minister's presentation was on the Government's thinking about Australia's evolving engagement in our region. Recognising that the Asia-Pacific will always be critically important to Australia's strategic and economic interests, the Minister spoke about the Government's policies to ensure, through bilateral, regional and multilateral cooperation, that we are collectively well placed to advance our common interests and respond to the challenges ahead.
