Description
 
The Commonwealth of Australia and the U.S. enjoy a very close alliance relationship. Australia shares many cultural traditions and values with the U.S. and has been a treaty ally since the signing of the Australia-New Zealand-U.S. (ANZUS) Treaty in 1951. Australia made major contributions to the allied cause in both the First and Second World Wars and has been a staunch ally of Britain and the U.S. In Nov. 2011 President Obama traveled to Australia to reaffirm and extend the bilateral ANZUS alliance. During his visit, upgrades to the alliance, including the stationing of U.S. Marines in northern Australia and increased rotations of U.S. Air Force planes, were announced. This marks a significant reaffirmation of the alliance at a time of shifting geopolitical dynamics in the Asia-Pacific Region and is viewed by many as a key component of the Obama Admin.s Pacific Pivot or strategic rebalancing. Contents of this report: Recent Events: Background on Australia: Government Structure and Domestic Politics; Defense Policy and Security Ties; Australian External Affairs; Australia and Counter-terrorism; Australia and the Environment; Economic and Trade issues. Map. This is a print on demand report.
