The Future of Australia-Japan relations
Since 2007 Australia-Japan relations have been dominated by the difference of opinion between Australia and Japan over whaling and by China overtaking Japan as Australia's largest trading partner (although Japan is still Australia's most important economic partner).

Monitoring progress is about keeping track of what you are doing and how well you are doing it as you work towards your targets.
