The land of dingoes, the Sydney Opera House, and "shrimp on the barbie" is not well understood by many Americans. Yet Australia is one of our closest allies with political, economic, and cultural challenges very similar to our own. A longtime ally with shared values and history, Australia in many ways provides both a bulwark and a bridge between the West and the East.
At this event you will receive a firsthand account from the Honorable Nick Minchin, Consul General of Australia in New York on where Australia is headed politically and culturally, and its unique place on the world stage.
