Book Launch: The Forgotten Speeches

On 28 June, I was delighted to launch David Furse-Roberts’ book Menzies: The Forgotten Speeches at Parliament House in Melbourne.

Sir Robert Menzies is not only the founder of the Liberal Party, but also serves as the gold standard for how to approach the role of being a representative of the people.

These forgotten speeches have only now been transcribed into book form, and I commend the brilliant work of David Furse-Roberts for bringing them to light, particularly given their relevance even today.

The book represents a reinvigoration of the importance and continued relevance of Sir Robert Menzies in the 21st century, continuing his legacy as one of the great Australian Prime Ministers.

2017 Energy Efficiency Council National Forum

On 28 June, I had the great pleasure to speak about energy efficiency at the 2017 Energy Efficiency Council National Forum.

Energy efficiency is critical for lower prices, for a more stable system and as we transition to a lower emissions future – and technology and innovation is key to energy efficiency.

The Turnbull Government is working to help address these issues and improve energy efficiency through regulation reforms.

Energy Networks Australia 2017 Gas Seminar

Gas is increasingly becoming a key source of power, and so I was pleased to be invited to speak at the Energy Networks Australia 2017 Gas Seminar on 28 June.

Through Energy Networks Australia, Australia’s gas industry is collaborating to articulate a vision for the sector that demonstrates its role in the energy transformation.

In my speech, I outlined the Turnbull Government’s plan to ensure secure, sustainable and affordable energy, as well as the trilemma we face in achieving this long-term policy plan.

Australian Energy Week

On 23 June, I had the privilege to address 400 delegates from over 100 energy sector companies about Australia’s energy future at Australian Energy Week in Melbourne.

Australian Energy Week explores some of the biggest challenges facing all aspects of the energy market with a strong focus on innovation, the future grid and developing an effective regulatory regime in a period of change.

With Australia’s energy system undergoing its greatest transition in over a century, the Turnbull Government’s priority is to maintain the security, reliability and affordability.

International CEO Forum

Thanks to the International CEO Forum for inviting me to speak at their 15th Foreign Investor Dialogue on 22 June at Parliament House in Canberra.

Each year, the event brings together the foreign business community active in Australia. I spoke to the challenges that Australia’s energy sector faces and the Turnbull Government’s solutions.

Carlton Football Club visit Canberra

It was fantastic to catch up with Carlton Football Club President Mark Logiudice, CEO Steven Trigg, the great Stephen Silvagni and dozens of other Blues supporters including Speaker the Hon Tony Smith MP at Parliament House in Canberra during June.

The Club was in Canberra to discuss AFL, AFLW and Indigenous participation in the sport – as well as tactics ahead of this weekend’s game, of course! Go Blues.

LNG Marine Fuels Institute Launch

World energy markets are changing rapidly and the shipping sector is no exception – hence on 19 June, I was delighted to launch the LNG Marine Fuels Institute, an independent non-profit organisation established to promote the best practice use of LNG as a marine fuel.

Every year, ships emit around 1,000 million tonnes of carbon dioxide into the world’s atmosphere, the equivalent of 2.5 per cent of emissions annually. Compared with bunker fuel oil, LNG has around 27 per cent less greenhouse gas emissions per unit when used in transport applications. Combined with advances in the efficiency of ship design, future shipping fleets have the potential to significantly reduce carbon emissions by around 40 per cent.

With Australia a major producer of liquefied natural gas (LNG) and the Turnbull Government progressing a wide range of reforms to increase domestic supply and put downward pressure on prices, the case for LNG as a marine fuel is strong.

Congratulations to CEO Captain Walter Purio, Chairman Richard Sandover, the board and all others involved.

Asialink Leaders Program

On 19 June, I had the pleasure of speaking with almost 60 leaders from business, government, the arts, media and not-for-profits who were participating in the Asialink Leaders Program at Parliament House in Canberra.

The Program is designed to train our next generation of leaders with an interest in deepening ties with Asia by giving them access to current leaders and encouraging them to examine issues central to engagement with the peoples and cultures of Asia.

I outlined the Turnbull Government’s actions to create a more secure and affordable energy system, while meeting our international commitments.

MobileMuster’s Local Government Awards

In mid-June, I was honoured to present awards to the mayors of the winning MobileMuster councils.

MobileMuster’s Local Government Awards recognise the outstanding efforts of local councils in promoting and collecting mobile phones and components for recycling. In the last year, councils have increased their collections by a huge 25 per cent and recycled over 4.5 tonnes through the program.

With electronic waste one of the fastest growing waste issues in Australia, it’s great to see MobileMuster bringing industry and local government together to make it easy to recycle and deliver important environmental benefits to our communities.

Congratulations National Top Collector per Capita District Council or Orroroo-Carrieton from South Australia as well as all state and territory Top Collectors.

2017 Australian Olympiad Team

Congratulations are in order for Kooyong students Anne Pham and Angus Cramond of Balwyn High School and Hadyn Tang of Trinity Grammar School for being selected for the 2017 Australian Olympiad Team.

Anne, Angus and Hadyn recently visited Parliament House in Canberra for the official team announcement.

I wish you all the very best ahead of the upcoming international science and maths competitions, Anne, Angus and Hadyn!
