OverviewThis study explores how Australia appears to people from 10 Asian societies with the most significant interactions with Australia. The surveys concentrate on people whose views are on the public record in various media, who significantly reflect opinion in their society, and who can therefore be taken to be both influential and to some extent representative. The results of this comprehensive survey, which suggest Australia has an image problem in the region, are detailed.
