The new Prime minister, Julia Gillard has cast doubt on the "Asia Pacific Community" proposed by her predecessor, Kevin Rudd.
The "Asia-Pacific Community" is seen as a broader alternative to the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation(APEC) and Association of South East Asian Nations(ASEAN).
"I don't get any indication, from the things that have been said, that there is going to be that degree of movement in the region." Jullia Gillard said.
