Description: U.S. Embassy Canberra announces an open competition for organizations interested in submitting proposals to organize a conference that examines current issues of interest to the United States, Australia, and their regional partners. Proposals should encourage think tanks to engage in a comprehensive conversation examining and analyzing the U.S.-Australia bilateral relationship; and how the two nations respond individually and jointly to opportunities and challenges -- domestic, regional, and global. This conference will be part of a series of U.S. Department of State-supported thematic conferences for think tank specialists, strategic thinkers, and academics focused on policy in the Asia Pacific region. Conference presenters and participants are encouraged to discuss the current status of U.S.-Australia relations, examine any challenges or areas of debate, and make recommendations for policy makers in both countries and the wider multilateral architecture in the Asia-Pacific region.
