The symposiums co-hosted with the Australian Institute of International Affairs in Sydney and The Japan Forum for Global Affairs in Tokyo, celebrate the tenth anniversary of the signing of Joint Declaration of Security Co-operation between Australia and Japan. The agreement deals with non-traditional security issues (such as climate change, piracy and movement of people) and is the only security agreement Japan has signed with any country other than the United States. Both symposiums will have specialist academics from Australia and Japan, former senior diplomats and representatives from the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade and the Japanese Department of Foreign Affairs discussing the importance of the declaration and the state of current bilateral ties.
