The institute says "the Dialogue brings together 10 Papua New Guinean and 10 Australian young people who are leaders in their fields, for two days of networking and discussion of priority issues for each country and the bilateral relationship".
 
The institute says that in 2018, PNG is on the international stage as host of the APEC summit and the Emerging Leaders' Dialogue will build on this event to focus discussions on the potential for tourism and travel to strengthen links between Australia and PNG.
 
"The meeting will be held in Cairns in the week of December 3, 2018. Participants will have the opportunity to visit tourism infrastructure in Far North Queensland before taking part in the Dialogue."
 
This is the sixth year of the Dialogue, and as in past years it will include professional networking opportunities with high-profile corporate, government and civil society organisations, and a public reception.
 
"We invite applications from and nominations of people aged under 40 years who are recognised by their organisations as showing drive and initiative and are making a positive contribution to their communities. Young professionals from any sector are encouraged to apply. No previous professional experience in the neighbouring country is required. Participants are selected based on their expertise and experience."
 
To apply or to nominate a candidate for the 2018 Australia-PNG Emerging Leaders Dialogue, send a CV and a nomination statement (one paragraph - up to 300 words) detailing the suitability of the candidate to smcleod@lowyinstitute.org by close of business on September 25, 2018.
