On this episode of Defence Connect Insight Podcast, Andrew Hastie MP joins hosts Phil Tarrant and Steve Kuper to break down the unique dynamics of the relationship between Australia and China.

The federal member for Canning and chair of the parliamentary joint committee on intelligence and security dissects China's rising influence in the Pacific, the security challenges China poses to Australia's national sovereignty, and how Australia can navigate this complex relationship to improve its national security.

Hastie shares his career trajectory to becoming a member of Parliament, why it's critical to approach negotiations from a position of strength, and how history should inform one's strategic insight.
