Australia's new strategy towards Asean - Kavi Chongkittavorn

 When Australia looks to the north, what does it see? Southeast Asia, of course. But the region is no longer the geographic landmass in its front yard comprised of 10 countries governed by different political systems and cultural values to its own. From next week onward, Southeast Asian countries, each with a unique domestic dynamic, will become the nexus of Australian foreign policy.

 

Official publicity often labelled the relationship as "natural partners", which is a bit misleading. In fact, Asean-EU ties are problematic and best characterised as a "hate-hate", rather than a "love-hate", relationship, as with other Asean partners. One non-EU Western diplomat even described the EU as "tone deaf".
