The Centenary of Anzac 2015 - 2018

The Centenary of Anzac is the most significant national period of commemoration in our nation’s history. Across Australia many have come together to honour those Australians who made the ultimate sacrifice in defence of our values and beliefs. A number of commemorative events have been held in Kooyong which pay tribute to local residents and many other Australians who answered the call to serve their nation. Funded under the Government’s Anzac Centenary Local Grants Program, these events will ensure that local community-based events are at the heart of the nation’s commemorative activities. Information about local commemorative events funded under the Anzac Centenary program can be found here

Boroondara Business Breakfast

On Friday 31 July I was delighted to address 120 local business and community figures at the Boroondara Business Breakfast held at the Hawthorn Arts Centre. I spoke about the global economy, and the Government’s action on free trade, creating jobs, cutting red tape, and our significant support in the federal Budget for families and for Australia’s two million small businesses. The breakfast was hosted by the City of Boroondara and Mayor Coral Ross.

European Australian Business Council (EABC) Boardroom Lunch

On 30 July 2015, I was pleased to address the European Australian Business Council (EABC) Boardroom Lunch in Melbourne. I spoke about the international economic climate and its impact on Australia’s economic position, in addition to discussing Australia’s domestic political landscape. The lunch was a terrific opportunity to hear from attendees on a range of important international and domestic issues. I am pictured here speaking at the luncheon.

CCH Heads of Tax Roundtable in Sydney

On 29 July 2015 I was delighted to discuss tax reform at the CCH Heads of Tax Roundtable in Sydney.  Hosted by CCH / Wolters Kluwer, during the roundtable I discussed current economic conditions, the Government's tax reform process now under way, and progress with the Budget announcements on multinational tax avoidance and GST on intangible  supplies. As well there was discussion of the Government's legislative achievements including the thin capitalisation changes and finalising the investment manager regime and updating the offshore banking unit legislation, both part of the Johnson Report agenda. I am pictured here with Russell Evans, CEO, Wolters Kluwer Asia Pacific and Michele de Niese, CEO, Corporate Tax Association.

Talking Small Business in the electorate of Mayo

On Monday 27 July I visited the electorate of Mayo in South Australia with the Hon Jamie Briggs MP to talk about the economy and financial services. We visited a number of local small businesses in his electorate including Pak-Rite which produces industrial packaging and Harris Smokehouse, a fourth generation family seafood business. We also attended a boardroom lunch where I spoke about Government initiatives in the area of tax reform and financial services. We then travelled to McLaren Vale where we dropped into the Yangarra and Serafino Wineries and then attended a roundtable with a group of winemakers at d'Arenberg Winery to discuss the Wine Equalisation Tax (WET) rebate which is being considered as part of the Tax White Paper process. This visit was a unique opportunity for me to meet face to face with small businesses in this vibrant local community.

Formal dedication of restored WWI memorials at St Columbs

On Sunday 26 July I joined parishioners of Hawthorn's St Columbs Church for a remembrance service and the formal dedication of the restored WWI memorial windows and honour boards. The WWI memorials were restored thanks to funding provided by the Government's Centenary of Anzac Local Grants Program. I am pictured here with Reverend Mike Flynn from St Columbs.

Hawthorn Community Chest Fundraising Ball

It was terrific to attend the Hawthorn Community Chest Moonlight Ball on Saturday 25 July at the Hawthorn Town Hall.  The Hawthorn Community Chest has been supporting local residents in need for over 50 years and money raised at this year’s ball will go to local residents in crisis in the areas of health, education and welfare. I am pictured here with Hawthorn Community Chest President, Richard Jones, Executive Officer Fiona Waring, City of Boroondara Mayor Coral Ross and Victoria's Shadow Attorney General and the Member for Hawthorn, John Pesutto MP.

Addressing Small Business in Sutherland Shire

On 29 June, I was delighted to represent the Treasurer and address over 250 small business leaders in Sydney’s Sutherland Shire.  I spoke about the Government’s reform agenda, deregulation and the economic benefits of the 2015-2016 Budget. It was great to see all levels of Government engaging on these issues – with NSW Treasurer, the Hon Gladys Berejiklian MP and Shire Mayor, Cr Kent Johns, also speaking.  The event was organised by ShireBiz, a business-led group dedicated to creating jobs in the Sutherland Shire and Southern Sydney.
