After reading the sangam article and some of the white paper they both recognise the importance of Australia strengthening the relationship with major countries in Asia. The Sangam article uses a different approach where it describes the need to engage the trust and social aspects that can unite the two nations. it discusses the specialisation each country brings to the table and the recognition Australia should give to the services they can supply.
However the White Paper discusses the importance of Australia’s geographical location to Asia and the rapidly modern shift countries such as China, India and Japan are going through at the moment. It gives a sense of urgency to jump on board this economic boom but also explaines the secondary effects of investing into the Asian market, such as security, increased skills and commercial success.
