Trained and educated as both a military and civil engineer, Lieut-Gen Sanderson spent his early military career in construction and training appointments, with operational deployments to both Borneo and South Vietnam.

For his work in Cambodia, General Sanderson was appointed a Companion of the Order of Australia. His contribution to the bilateral and regional relationships has also been recognised by the United States of America with the award of the Legion of Merit Commander Class.

The foundation's chairman, former West Australian governor Lieutenant-General John Sanderson, said dialogue was necessary ``to have some idea of where we are going in this country''. ``We found we had to have a proper structured relationship with our indigenous people in a far more comprehensive way,'' he said. General Sanderson, who is an adviser on indigenous issues to the West Australian Government, said indigenous engagement with the economy in the state was real, and further opportunities had to be grasped.
