On Tuesday 8 November we welcome the Vietnamese Ambassador to Australia, His Excellency Mr Nguyen Tat Thanh.

To introduce his address, he writes:

"Our economies enjoy perfect complementarity in human, natural and financial resources, which made us natural partners. We have achieved a lot together during the 50 years of diplomatic relationship, built upon our mutual understanding, sense of responsibility and respect for multilateralism and the international rules-based order.

"As a fan of chess, I would imagine the Indo-Pacific as a chessboard, where Australia could be a rook, Viet Nam a knight. At this game-changing juncture, I wish to share with AIIA members my reading of our joint mission, from opening to mid-game. We have to coordinate closely between ourselves and with others to design a happy endgame across the board."


We will have space for a limited number of participants in-person at the Glover Cottages, tickets to be pre-paid (all in-person attendees must be fully vaccinated against Covid-19 or hold a valid exemption). Once the limit for in-person attendees is reached, tickets will no longer be sold on the website or at the door.

Refreshments will be served from 6pm at Glover Cottages.
