Inaugural Dialogue Chair’s Statement
We, the Chairs of the inaugural Asia Pacific Development, Diplomacy and Defence Dialogue (Asia Pacific 4D), convened 25 influential international relations leaders at the
Australian National University on 5 November 2019. This new partnership between our organisations was created on the collective agreement that greater strategic collaboration between the individual fields of foreign policy is required to help Australia address the unprecedented international relations environment it faces.
In convening this multidisciplinary group, this inaugural dialogue established the foundations of a new and more extensive partnership between our fields of development, diplomacy and defence and set a course for its future. Download the Inaugural Dialogue Chair’s Statement, 5 November 2019
