The Perth USAsia Centre is a policy think tank and academic institution housed at the University of Western Australia (UWA).
The Centre is dedicated to deepening understanding of the Australia–Asia–US strategic and economic triangle, Australia’s unique position in energy and sustainability, and the parallels between Western Australia and the American West.
The Centre leverages its location and the dynamic local academic, civic, political communities in Western Australia to focus on the opportunities and obligations of Perth’s role as an Asian city. From 2015, this includes driving and coordinating further development of the In The Zone conference and event series in partnership with UWA.
The Perth USAsia Centre works closely with its sister institution, the United States Studies Centre at the University of Sydney, to strengthen collaborative relationships with the United States and within the Asia-Pacific Region. A new report 'Australia Matters for America: America Matters for Australia' , by the USAsia Centre and partners, was launched in Washington DC in April 2015.
