Global Food Forum 2016

It was an honour to deliver a keynote address at this year’s Global Food Forum in Melbourne on 20 April. Now in its fourth year, the forum is presented by the Australian in partnership with VISY, and features business leaders, farmers, politicians and international speakers discussing the state of Australia’s thriving agribusiness sector. I discussed the opportunities presented by emerging global markets, as well as the potential of northern Australia to take advantage of soaring demand for our food exports. By opening up new overseas markets, investing in the necessary infrastructure and ensuring that Australia remains an attractive destination for investment, the Government is committed to ensuring the agricultural sector’s success.



Kew East Primary School visits Canberra

One of my Canberra highlights is spending time with the hundreds of Kooyong school students that visit Parliament each year. On 19 April, I was delighted to welcome and meet a large group of 115 students visiting from Kew East Primary School. The students toured Parliament and attended Question Time – as have two million other Australian students since the first opening of Australian Parliament House in 1988.


Auburn Primary School Fete

The Auburn Primary School Fete lived up to its reputation thgis year with lots of great stalls and fun activities for every member of the family. Some of the activities included a soccer clinic, performances by the junior and senior school choir and the school band, a book signing by AFL's Sam Mitchell. It was a fabulous (and sunny!) day and credit goes to all those involved for making this annual community event such a great success!


Raising funds for cure4MND Foundation at BNA

The Boroondara Netball Association based at Macleay Park in North Balwyn is the largest netball association in Victoria with over 3,500 people playing on the netball courts each season. BNA has over 300 community and school based teams playing in the domestic competition each year. Today was an extra special day at Macleay Park when I joined the BNA President Sue Reddish, Treasurer, Kirrily Zimmerman and Bec Daniher who is also a board member of Cure4MND, to raise much needed funds for the cure4MND Foundation established by footy great and local, Neale Daniher.  I am pictured here with Sue Reddish, a just-dunked Kirrily Zimmerman and Bec Daniher.




LNG18 Conference in Perth

Between 11 and 15 April, Perth hosted LNG18, which saw 6,000 industry leaders from 95 countries descend on the city. With Australia to overtake Qatar as the world’s largest LNG producer by 2020, it was a good opportunity in the plenary and bilateral sessions to underline Australia’s significant market position and commitment to attracting foreign investment.

Inspecting Australia’s future LNG infrastructure in South Korea

On 15 April I visited Samsung Heavy industries in Busan, South Korea to see some of Australia’s future LNG infrastructure being built. Shell’s Prelude floating LNG facility, which will be based 200km off the coast of Western Australia, will be the largest offshore facility ever built. I also visited Inpex’s Ichthys Central Processing Facility, which will also enable processing of gas to take place offshore before being transmitted through the 890km pipeline to Darwin. This important infrastructure will enable Australia’s large gas fields to be developed and help Australia to become the world’s largest LNG exporter by 2020.

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.
