Australia has a strong alliance with America, one that has remained unwavering through changes of leadership and turbulent international developments. While agreements such as AUKUS and the Quad have strengthened our position in the region, it has come at the cost of relations with other states in the region and could in the future draw us into conflict.
Where does this leave our future security and prosperity in Asia? Is there a better way to navigate the disruption caused by China’s rise?
