Sunset with palm trees in the pacific islands

Roundtable on Western strategies in the Pacific islands

On Tuesday, 3 October, the Australian Strategic Policy Institute’s DC office hosted an invitation-only, closed-door roundtable with Dr Anna Powles from Massey University and ASPI Senior Fellow Jose Sousa-Santos.

Our guests offered insights following the second U.S.-Pacific Island Forum Leader’s Summit. They discussed security trends in the Pacific region, including how Australia, the US can work with partners to counter Chinese influence, advance common interests, and support the human security efforts of Pacific island states.

Participants included representatives from the US Government, think tanks, and commercial actors.
