This year marked the 21st year of the annual dialogue – a key part of regular bilateral engagement activities which brings together senior leaders from the Australian Department of Defence and the PLA to discuss a range of regional security issues, including maritime security.

Moriarty said Australia’s bilateral defence relationship with China was underpinned by a common interest in ensuring a strong, stable and prosperous region.

"The Australia-China defence relationship is an important part of our broader bilateral relationship," he said.

GEN Campbell said the Australia-China Defence Strategic Dialogue provided a useful forum in which frank and open discussion on a number of regional challenges could occur.

"This year’s exchange of views was again productive and included discussions on maintaining regional peace and stability on the Korean Peninsula and in the South China Sea," GEN Campbell said. 

Australia will host the 22nd Australia-China Defence Strategic Dialogue in Canberra next year. The annual dialogue is an opportunity to discuss the full breadth of issues in the bilateral relationship, as well as key regional and global issues of mutual concern.
