Given that federal elections are being held in Australia there is no word yet on who will represent Canberra at the Quadilateral Security Dialogue on May 24 or whether a Prime Minister from Australia will be the odd person joining the meet in the virtual mode. Nevertheless, the four leaders are meeting to give shape to the Indo-Pacific so as to meet the rising challenges and opportunities.
