Professor Toshiro Nishizawa’s article titled “Australia as Japan’s regional partner of choice” was published by the East Asia Forum. The main thrust of his argument is as follows.

Australia released its new International Development Policy for a Peaceful, Stable and Prosperous Indo-Pacific in August 2023, which coincided with Japan’s Cabinet revision of its Development Cooperation Charter. Australia’s pragmatic approach to hedge against geopolitical uncertainties can be a model for Japan, as a middle-power state, in development cooperation. Nevertheless, in any event, for international development strategies to successfully respond to partner needs and priorities, deeds matter more than words.
