The Administration has indicated it plans to “pivot” its security focus to Asia. How do America’s allies and friends in the region view that news? Join us as a member of Australia’s House of Representatives, the Honorable Tony Abbott, discusses America’s global role, the Australia-U.S. relationship, and the role of the Australia-U.S. security alliance in the Asia-Pacific region. Mr. Abbott, a member of the Liberal Party in Australia, has been the Leader of the Opposition since December 2009. At a time when the U.S. military is facing deep budget cuts, his views on the future of this alliance, which has proven to be among the world’s closest and most enduring, should be of great interest in Washington.
