Australia Week in China

On 14 April, I joined the Prime Minister and ministerial colleagues, Steve Ciobo and Richard Colbeck, at Australia Week in China. As part of the week, over 150 events were held across 10 different cities with more than 1,000 Australian business leaders joining the event. I had the pleasure of addressing the Australia Chamber of Commerce in Shanghai, attending a major luncheon address by the Prime Minister, and visiting Baosteel, China’s largest steel producer and the purchaser of 40 million tonnes of Australian iron ore each year.

Visit to Canning

On 13 April, it was terrific to join local member Andrew Hastie in Canning, the home of significant resources industries including Newmont’s Boddington Gold mine and MZI Resources, producer of mineral sands. It was also great to catch up with Jamieson Kay, year 12 student from Mandurah Catholic College in her role as ‘Minister for the Day’.

On 13 April, I joined Minister for Social Services, Christian Porter, and Western Australian Treasurer, Mike Nahan, for a discussion about red tape reduction, federalism, and future resource demand at a panel organised by the Swan Chamber of Commerce.

Visit to Gorgon LNG with the Prime Minister

On 11 April, I joined the Prime Minister in visiting the Gorgon LNG project on Barrow Island, off the coast of Western Australia. At a cost of US$54 billion, this project is Australia’s largest ever private sector investment and includes the world’s largest subsea structure ever built. Great care has been taken to protect the flora and fauna on Barrow Island, a Class-A nature reserve, at the same time building a significant LNG project.

Annual Kooyong Business Women's Luncheon

On 7 April I hosted the annual Kooyong Women's Lunch with a wonderful group of ladies who strive to make a difference in our local community. This year our group comprised of community leaders, educators, scientists, business figures. At lunch we were joined by the inspiring Senator Linda Reynolds, Australia's first female Brigadier in the Army Reserve.

Address to Rotary Club of Camberwell

I was delighted to address the Rotary Club of Camberwell on 6 April at the Club's dinner meeting. In a wide ranging discussion I touched on issues including the economy, tax reform and trade, and in particular in my portfolio, how Australia will become the largest exporter of LPG by 2020. I also spoke about the fact that over the last twelve months 85,000 more women than men entered the workforce creating the highest female participation rate plus total employment has increased by 3.9% or 441,000 since September 2013.  My address concluded with a Q&A session with many of the Club's members participating with very interesting questions.  I am pictured here with Chairman for the night, Garry Goldsmith and Club President, Anne Murphy.

Vehicle Emissions Forum

On 4th April I chaired a stakeholder engagement session on approaches to alternative fuels and electric vehicles, as part of the Vehicle Emissions Forum led by Minister Paul Fletcher, Minister Greg Hunt and myself.  The sessions followed a forum held last December which helped inform the development of a discussion paper released earlier this year. It was useful to hear ideas from a range of key stakeholder groups on ways the Government can continue to deliver positive action on reducing vehicle emissions to benefit industry and consumers.

Pollie Pedal 2016

It was terrific to ride in the first leg of this year’s Pollie Pedal on 3rd April, leaving Parliament House and arriving in Yass. This year’s ride hopes to raise $300,000 for Carers Australia, the national peak body supporting Australia’s 2.8 million carers. It is always great to get involved in this initiative with my parliamentary colleagues, which has raised over $4.5 million for Australian not-for-profits over the last 19 years.

2016 Terralex Asia Pacific meeting

On 2nd April I addressed a range of Asia Pacific businesses about the opportunities for investing in the Australian economy. To help facilitate this investment the Government has negotiated free trade agreements with China, Japan, Korea and the 12 countries that form the Trans-Pacific Partnership. But we cannot afford to rest on our laurels. The Government is continuing to improve Australia’s international competitiveness through industrial relations reform, tax reform and our deregulation agenda. 

Visit to Breast Cancer Network Australia

It was wonderful to visit Breast Cancer Network Australia in Camberwell last week and catch up with CEO Christine Nolan and some of her staff. I always look forward to learning about BCNA's work and how they are supporting Australians affected by breast cancer.
