Ms Julie Bishop discusses key ingredients for a secure, open, stable and prosperous Indo-Pacific.

Interested in the Bigger Picture- Diplomacy, Geoeconomics and Cooperation in the Indo-Pacific? Tune into this video with Australia’s former Foreign Minister of Australia and current Chancellor of the prestigious Australian National University, Julie Bishop. Ms Bishop, who was also Deputy Leader of the Australian Liberal Party, is widely regarded as one of Australia’s finest Ministers for Foreign Affairs; she is credited with strengthening Australia’s strategic and economic relationships and positioned the country as the largest aid donor to the Indo-Pacific region. Under her leadership, Australia’s 2017 Foreign Policy White Paper – a comprehensive policy framework for the subsequent decade – was developed. As the first woman to hold the role of Foreign Minister, she made gender equality and women’s empowerment a key priority in Australia’s foreign policy.
