The AAED will involve key education and training stakeholders and thought leaders from ASEAN and Australia. It reflects the ASEAN-Australian commitment to a long-term education partnership informed by the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) 2030 and Australia’s National Strategy for International Education 2025.
The Dialogue will strengthen the current links between Australia and ASEAN across key education sectors to build a broader ASEAN-Australia regional and global engagement. It will result in policy initiatives and partnerships between a range of ASEAN and Australian education organisations.
The AAED is expected to attract some 400 delegates with cohorts from each of the ASEAN member states and from Australia thus providing an opportunity to meet and connect in a communal environment.
The Dialogue brings together leading regional and Australian Education and Training practitioners and providers with equal numbers from the 10 ASEAN member countries and Australia. It takes place directly after the ASEAN Australia Leaders Summit, 2018 in Sydney, Australia and immediately before the APAIE Conference in Singapore.
