Last November, the Sydney International Strategy Forum brought together prominent thought leaders, policymakers and industry experts to tackle the big issues confronting the Indo-Pacific one year away from the US election. Conference speakers included former Undersecretary of Defense Michele Flournoy, former INDO-PACOM Commander Phil Davidson, Australian Minister for Resources Madeleine King and Shadow Foreign Minister Simon Birmingham.

From bolstering supply chain resilience to turning AUKUS into reality, the forum discussed the enormous opportunities and risks posed by such cross-cutting challenges and their implications for our region.

On 20 November 2024 — two weeks after the US election — the United States Studies Centre will host the second Sydney International Strategy Forum, bringing together world-renowned thought leaders for an in-depth discussion of what happens next.
