Op-Ed by Australian Foreign Minister Julie Bishop: Australia’s prospering partnership with ASEAN

 On a recent visit to South East Asia, I was reminded of the strength of Australia’s partnership with the countries of ASEAN – the Association of Southeast Asian Nations.

In Malaysia I met some of the 300,000 alumni of Australian universities, many now serving in key government and business positions.

In the Philippines I saw first-hand our joint relief effort in the wake of Typhoon Haiyan and was joined by hundreds of school children to celebrate a new $150 million Australian initiative for basic education needs.

In Vietnam, I was reminded further of our cooperation with projects such as the Australian-Asian Development Bank co-funded Cao Lanh Bridge that will connect communities in an economy of nearly 90 million people.

Op-ed by Australian Foreign Minister Julie Bishop on the occasion of International Women's Day 2014

The empowerment of women and girls is one of the most effective ways to achieve higher economic growth and better living standards among the millions of people in developing countries in our region.

As Australia’s first female Foreign Minister, support for the empowerment of women and girls in our region, the Indian Ocean Asia Pacific, is one of my highest priorities.

News: Australia supports women in Vietnam

Australia will provide a total of $4.2 million for two projects to be delivered in partnership with the Vietnam Women’s Union, the country’s peak organisation for advancing the rights of women and girls.

$2.1 million will be provided for a new agricultural research partnership project to be delivered through the Australian Centre for Agricultural Research (ACIAR). This project will deliver real improvements to women’s lives, lifting household incomes by linking farmers and traders with more lucrative markets in urban centres. 

The Australian Government will also provide $2.1 million for combating gender-based violence under the Australia’s Government Partnerships for Development program (GPFD), which provides grants to link Australian and international public sector organisations.
