The Rise of the Asia-Pacific and the Role of Creative Middle Power Diplomacy

Address by Mr Kevin Rudd MP, Foreign Minister of Australia.

Time and Place: 19th May 2011 12:00 - 13:30, Auditorium 1, Eilert Sundts hus, University of Oslo.

Mr Rudd's presentation will highlight the common challenges that Norway and Australia share as contemporary middle powers with global economic and strategic interests. Asia's growth is fundamentally changing global power dynamics - and China's growing prosperity is changing the world.

Mr Rudd will argue that the Asia Pacific needs to work together if it is to assure the continuation of the region's growth and prosperity over the last 40 years. How Australia and Norway engage the Asia Pacific is an important element in meeting that challenge.
