  • encourage private sector collaboration and sponsorship of the NCP Mobility Program;

  • engage NCP Students, Australian Universities, and other stakeholders in public diplomacy and outreach;

  • and continue to develop an active alumni community for Students to share their experiences, promote the NCP and continue to develop knowledge of and professional links within the Indo-Pacific region.
