ASEAN and Australia celebrating 30 years
The year 2004 marks the 30th anniversary of Australia's dialogue partnership with the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN). Formed in 1967, ASEAN is the primary regional institution in South-East Asia and a respected participant in global affairs. Australia became an ASEAN dialogue partner in 1974 - the first country ASEAN agreed to meet on a regular basis to discuss political, economic and functional cooperation.
ASEAN and Australia celebrating 30 years was published to commemorate this anniversary, to serve as a reminder of Australia's long-standing links with South-East Asia and of its strong bilateral ties with the member countries of ASEAN.
