The Sydney Morning Herald reports on an address given by the Hon. Senator Penny Wong to the USSC on the role of the United States in Asia.

The article notes the Shadow Minister for Foreign Affairs' analysis of the changing character of the Indo-Pacific region in the face of a new style of US diplomacy and more assertive China.

“The global community is still coming to terms with this new America,” Senator Wong said. “The reconfigured way the US is setting about conducting itself in the management of global affairs is generating something of a global rethink about how best to work with the US.”
