With the Australian federal election complete, the US 2020 presidential race well underway and a rapid increase of US-China tensions, it is time to reassess the future of Australia's relationship with the United States.

A former advisor to US Secretary of State John Kerry and a former advisor to Australian Foreign Minister Julie Bishop joined forces to look at why there are divergences between the two allies when it comes to countering China, and how to narrow those differences. 

USSC Senior Fellow Dr Charles Edel and Non-Resident Senior Fellow Dr John Lee launched their special report at an event in Sydney, presented their findings, and laid out their bold recommendations for navigating the relationship into the future.

Non-Resident Senior Fellow Dr Elsina Wainwright moderated a discussion with the authors.
