Europe Day: EU Ambassador Michael Pulch in conversation with Jim Middleton, 10 May 5:30-6:30 pm (AEST)

Organised by EU Delegation to Australia

Description

You are invited to join (in person and online) the next 'Meet the Ambassador Series' brought to you by the Australian Institute of International Affairs, Victoria.

The European Union and Australia enjoy a strong, dynamic and continuously evolving partnership, the foundations of which were laid in the 1960s.

An umbrella Framework Agreement was signed in 2017 and is currently being provisionally applied. This Agreement updates and expands the bilateral relationship further deepening our shared values and close historical, political, economic and cultural ties.

The EU and Australia are like-minded partners on the international stage and work together to find solutions to global challenges, both bilaterally and multilaterally. Strategic cooperation is ongoing in areas such as counter-terrorism, development and humanitarian aid, the promotion of human rights as well as supporting the rules-based international system.

What are some of the challenges in a post-COVID world that the EU and Australia can work on together? How do EU interests in the Indo-Pacific align with Australia’s?

To mark Europe Day (held on 9 May each year), and co-hosting with the European Delegation to Australia, AIIA Victoria invites you to join HE Dr Michael Pulch and Jim Middleton for the latest instalment of our Meet the Ambassador series.

This event is open to all, and it will also be streamed online via Zoom. Registrations close on 10 May at 2pm, after which you will receive a follow-up email containing details of how to join the Zoom webinar. The event will commence at 5:30pm AEST (Melbourne time, UTC+10).
