This article focuses on the growing business relations of Australia and New Zealand with Asia. Traditionally New Zealanders and Australians have felt more comfortable doing business with the U.S. and Europe than with Asia. Increasingly they are concluding that their future lies closer to home. According to Australian Prime Minister Bob Hawke, the region's brisk growth provides "tremendous opportunities and new responsibilities." The conference of regional leaders that Hawke convened in Australia in early November 1989 dramatizes his desire to play a stronger Asian role.
