About the Initiative:

In recognition of the enduring ties and common interests between the United States and Australia, CSIS and BHP Billiton (one of the world’ leading resources companies) have partnered to present the U.S.-Australia Speaker Series. The series focuses attention on key issues related to U.S.-Australia relations, energy, trade, and investment. It is a platform for an exchange of senior U.S. and Australian officials from government, private sector, civil society, and the media.

The U.S.-Australia Speaker Series promotes thought leadership and hopes to raise awareness in Washington of the issues facing the U.S.-Australia bilateral relationship. The centerpiece of the series are public events at CSIS which are targeted to a broad national and international audience, and designed to increase discussion of areas of mutual interest between Australia and the United States.

Recordings of events, and audio and video interviews with the Australia Speaker Series participants and other experts will be made available here.
