Indo-Pacific Maritime Cooperation
The Australian Institute of International Affairs, China Institute of International Studies and the Cambodian Institute for cooperation and Peace co-hosted an international conference: “Indo-Pacific Maritime Security and Cooperation: Opportunities & Challenges” in Beijing on 18-20 April. The symposium provided a valuable forum to build international understanding of Indo-Pacific maritime issues.
More than 60 participants from China, the United States, Australia, Russia, Japan, India and many other countries in the region attended the symposium, including diplomats, senior officials and scholars from universities and think tanks. Participants discussed existing cooperation mechanisms in the Indo-Pacific, maritime economic cooperation and non-traditional security cooperation.
The AIIA would like to thank the China Institute of International Studies and the Cambodian Institute for Cooperation and Peace for co-hosting this symposium and looks forward to further opportunities to cooperate in the future.
