Australia, Relations with


Australia, Relations with
   Although Australia suspended foreign aid after the SLORC seized power in September 1988, Canberra's perception of the importance of maintaining friendly ties with neighboring Asian countries contributed to relations based largely on "constructive engagement," in contrast to the policies of the United States and some members of the European Union. Beginning in 2000, the Australian government funded seminars on human rights for Burmese civil servants, although Daw Aung San Suu Kyi was sceptical about the usefulness of this program.
