"It is our shared vision that by 2020 we will live in an Australia which our children can...take up the opportunities offered by the intellectual and economic powerhouses of China and India...An Australia in which a unique, vibrant, creative culture has blossomed, a culture that understands its Indigenous connectedness to land and is fed as much by influences of great civilisations of Aisia as those by Europe."

Carrillo Gantner AO, National Summit on Studies of Asia, 2003
