It felt like a lifetime, but when I checked the progress of our journey to Bali on my screen, we still hadn’t crossed the Australian border near Darwin. “Australia is such a big country”, I thought to myself. But then in a flash, it was wheels down and we had arrived in Indonesia. The proximity caught me off guard. Australia is on the doorstep of the fastest growing region in the world. It might seem obvious, but in my day to day existence, I’d never given it too much thought. Now I can’t stop thinking about it. The potential for Australia to make a contribution in the region is unique and it’s big. Very big.
