The inaugural ASEAN-Australia Education Dialogue (AAED) was convened in Penang, Malaysia in 2018 and again in Georgetown in 2019.


With the impact of COVID 19, we have moved the Dialogue to an online platform in 2020 focusing on country and sector specific webinars.

AAED in both its face to face and virtual format provides an opportunity for thought leaders, key government officials, business representatives and education practitioners from ASEAN and Australia, to come together to share responses to key issues, inspire fresh ideas, build connections and identify regional partnership opportunities.

The Australian Government Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) has contributed to our virtual panels, as has the Department of Education, Skills and Employment (DESE). AAED is proud to work with our ASEAN regional partners and panellists, including from the ASEAN University Network (AUN), the Southeast Asian Ministers of Education Organization (SEAMEO) and the HEAD Foundation based in Singapore.
