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.  

Visit to 4th Kew Scout Group

It was terrific to visit the 4th Kew Scout Group today and be presented with a Victorian state scarf by Jack Brian, 4th Kew's chief scout ambassador. Following the presentation I shared a left handed handshake with Jack.

Visit to Basscare

It was terrific to visit Basscare in Canterbury on 1 April and to meet with CEO David Cotter and the Meals on Wheels team.  Basscare provides a range of services for older people and people with disabilities in the local community. Through its dedicated team of Meals on Wheels volunteers, Basscare delivers more than 30,000 meals a year. It was a real pleasure to meet with the volunteers and to see how much enjoyment they receive from making a difference in the local community.

Meeting with Minister Arun Jaitley

On 1st April, I had a very productive meeting with Hon. Arun Jaitley, Indian Minister for Finance, discussing energy and resource cooperation between our countries.  We have $15 billion worth of annual two-way trade, we export some $5 billion worth of coal to India, and we have recently signed our first export contract of LNG to India from the Gorgon project.  Going forward, Australia will continue to be a vital partner in the meeting of India’s growing energy needs.

Visit to the Western Darling Downs

On 30th March I visited Maranoa with Local Member, Bruce Scott, to see Australia Pacific LNG APLNG’s upstream gas facilities in action. As well as touring the gas processing facility and water treatment plant, it was interesting to meet with local landholders on their property to see firsthand how agriculture can co-exist productively with gas development.

Visit to Curtis Island

It was great to join Ken O’Dowd in Flynn on 29th March to tour Australia Pacific LNG (APLNG)’s world leading natural gas project on Curtis Island, off the coast of Gladstone. A joint venture between Origin, ConocoPhillips and Sinopec, the project is one of three LNG projects on Curtis Island, worth a total of $80 billion. Once fully operational, the APLNG project will produce around nine million tonnes of gas per annum which will be supplied to domestic markets and exported to some of our key regional trading partners including China, Korea and Japan. The project, which includes the construction of a 530 kilometre gas transmission pipeline, employed around 6,000 people, boosting skills and the local economy.

AICC NSW business lunch

On Wednesday 23 March, I joined the Australia-Israel Chamber of Commerce NSW to address their business lunch on Australia's highly innovative resources and energy sector. The Chamber encourages Australian business networking, and promotes trade between Australia and Israel. Its national membership exceeds 1000 leading Australian companies. The Australian Government's recently announced innovation landing pad in Tel Aviv highlights the strength of the Australia-Israel relationship and the exciting opportunities for mutual learning and deeper collaboration.

Address to The Sydney Institute

On 22 March, I addressed The Sydney Institute on the opportunities and challenges in Australia’s resources and energy sectors. I emphasised the importance of Australia’s resources and energy sectors to our economy and noted that despite current global market volatility, we should be optimistic about the future, particularly given our capacity to innovate, and use technology to enhance productivity. I also emphasised the need to pursue reform to ensure Australia’s continued success, including through the increased use and accessibility of geoscience mapping and through greater labour market flexibility.
