The Marco Polo Project reflects Australia’s unique position as an interface between Asia, Europe and the United States. By its geography, and the growing number of migrants from Asia, Australia is part of Asia-Pacific. By its history, its economy and its political system, it is part of ‘the Western world’, and strongly connected to the United States and Europe.

In the context of a rising China, and a shift of the World centre to the Pacific, Australia has a key to play as an interface between worlds. The Marco Polo Projec reflects Australia’s commitment to multicultural dialogue, and its unique cultural, historical and geographical position at the interface of Asia, Europe and America.
