The Perth USAsia Centre will be bringing together Indo-Pacific trade and foreign policy experts to discuss the recent trends and shifts in the regional trade system. The high-calibre speaker line-up includes:

  • Dr Taeho Bark, South Korea's Former Minister for Trade

  • Ambassador Frank Lavin, CEO Export Now, Former US Under-Secretary of Commerce for International Trade; and Former US Ambassador to Singapore

  • Ms Andrea Gleason, Director Western Australian State Office, Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade

  • Mr Andrew Parker, Executive General Manager, International Services, Australia Post 


The Indo-Pacific regional trade architecture is undergoing turbulent shifts prompted by an assertive Trump Administration trade policy which is affecting major trading partners and allies. Western Australia currently conducts 78% of its trade with countries in the region. Shifts in the regional trade system will have significant implications to Western Australia’s economic engagement with countries in the region.


Dr Taeho Bark, Ambassador Frank Lavin, Ms Andrea Gleason and Mr Andrew Parker will explore possible policy responses to changes in the regional trading system and strategies to ensure the continued economic security and prosperity of the Indo-Pacific region.
