The Australia–Japan Youth Dialogue is an independent and non-partisan diplomatic initiative. The dialogue brings emerging Australian and Japanese leaders together to learn, share and contribute to the strong relationship that exists between their two countries.
We promote young leaders and ideas that will strengthen and support the future of the Australia-Japan relationship
We are expanding our activities, to harness the good-will and deep experience that is resident in the Australia-Japan community.
“It is young leaders like you who will be forming our future bilateral relations. I firmly believe this Dialogue will further promote our intellectual exchange and mutual understanding, pave the way for your bright future and lead up to reinforcing our ever-growing relationship between Japan and Australia.”
Former Prime Minister of Japan
