Prime Minister

I am pleased to have accepted an invitation to deliver the keynote address at the 20th Shangri-La Dialogue on 2 June in Singapore.

Convened by the International Institute for Strategic Studies, the Shangri-La Dialogue is the region’s premier strategic forum that brings together top government and thought leaders from across the Indo-Pacific and beyond to discuss regional security dynamics and challenges.

This year’s Dialogue will provide an important platform for Australia’s voice to be heard on crucial issues affecting the future of the region on which Australia’s security and prosperity depends.

Australia is committed to deepening engagement in Southeast Asia and across the Indo-Pacific and to addressing shared opportunities and challenges in our region.

Quotes attributable to Prime Minister Albanese:

“We want a region that is stable, peaceful, resilient and prosperous. Forums like the Shangri-La Dialogue offer a valuable opportunity to discuss our shared aspirations for the Indo-Pacific. I am honoured to deliver the keynote address and look forward to sharing Australia’s strategic outlook at the Dialogue.

“Australia and Singapore’s close relationship is underpinned by our common strategic and economic interests. I look forward to travelling to Singapore for this important event.
