EVENT: Special Event with Her Excellency the High Commissioner to Pakistan, Ms Margaret Adamson
|Special Event with Her Excellency the High Commissioner to Pakistan, Ms Margaret Adamson
Centre for Muslim States and Societies and AIIA WA is co-organising a special event with Her Excellency the High Commissioner to Pakistan, Ms Margaret Adamson.
Pakistan turned 70 in August last year. It is situated in a region of historically overlapping and competing power projections, a region which remains a major theatre of instability and strategic interest in todayís rapidly evolving geopolitical landscape. Although Pakistan continues to be confronted by domestic security challenges, its young population, natural resources and share of the region's exceptional cultural heritage are assets for a brighter future for this sixth most populous nation. Pakistan's economic and social indicators still compare poorly on global measures, but there are some positive developments. Australia-Pakistan relations date to Pakistan's creation, but people-to-people links are much older, reaching back to the 19th century. Thousands of Pakistani students are studying in Australia. Australian aid is investing in Pakistan's sustainable inclusive development and our humanitarian assistance is supporting Afghan refugees and their host communities. Commercial ties are on the rise and have potential to grow to more substantial levels.
This event will accord with the Chatham House Rule.
Tea and coffee will be provided.
