Australia India Energy Security Dialogue

It was an honour to welcome the Indian Minister for Power, Coal and New and Renewable Energy to Canberra today for the third Australia India Energy Security Dialogue. India is a major player in the global energy market, being the third largest energy consumer while Australia also plays a key role in the sector, being the world’s largest exporter of thermal coal and on track to become the world’s largest exporter of LNG by 2020. During the dialogue we discussed a number of priority issues for both Australia and India including clean coal technology, energy efficiency, renewable energy, petroleum and natural gas. I look forward to continuing to strengthen my relationship with Minister Goyal and furthering our cooperation in the energy sector.

Meeting with Executive Director of the International Energy Agency, Dr Fatih Birol

Today I welcomed Dr Fatih Birol, the Executive Director of the International Energy Agency (IEA), to Canberra. Australia plays an important role in the IEA which has been strengthened by my meeting with Dr Birol today. Our meeting covered a range of issues central to the global energy sector, including greater engagement with emerging economies particularly in South-East Asia, energy security, clean energy and energy efficiency. We also discussed Australia’s contribution to the IEA’s modernisation plan, which Dr Birol leads.

Visit to RJE Adelaide

The last stop on my Adelaide visit was to one of South Australia’s innovative mining equipment, technology and services businesses, RJE. To expand their business, RJE have developed integrated solutions to provide turn-key electrical engineering and construction services for the industrial sector. South Australia is home to many of Australia’s mining equipment, technology and services business, a $90 billion a year national industry, including $15 billion of exports.

South Australian Chamber of Minerals and Energy

As part of my visit to Adelaide, I spent the morning with members of the South Australian Chamber of Minerals and Energy discussing the future development of the resources and energy sectors. Resource projects are important to the health of the South Australian economy and Australia as a whole. The future growth on the sector will depend in part on getting the policy settings right, particularly on issues like industrial relations.

Meeting with Minister Coralee O'Rourke and North Queensland Mayors

I was delighted to welcome Minister Assisting the Premier on North Queensland, the Hon Coralee O'Rourke, to Canberra with a delegation of North Queensland Mayors. All three levels of Government - Commonwealth, State and local - are committed to working together, on a bipartisan basis, to realise the tremendous opportunities to develop Northern Australia. 

I’m pictured below with Minister O’Rourke and Mayors Frank Beveridge (Charters Towers Regional Council), Ernie Camp (Burke Shire Council), Ran Carige (Banana Shire), Rob Chandler (Barcaldine Regional Council), Cr Bill Shannon (Cassowary Coast Regional Council) and Cr John Wharton AM (Richmond Shire).

Induction into the International Tennis Club of Australia

On 31 January, I had the great honour of being inducted into the International Tennis Club of Australia as an honorary member. This humbling experience was matched by meeting two of my childhood heroes, Rod Laver AC and Margaret Court AO. Tennis has been a huge part of my life. I’ve been fortunate to represent Australia twice at the World University Games, and have been able to play competitive tennis in a number of other countries. Since 2003, I have also been a board member of the Kids Tennis Foundation, which aims to provide disadvantaged children in Australian schools with the opportunity to play tennis. I’m pictured here with the two tennis greats, Rod and Margaret.

Memorandum of Understanding with Colombia

On 22 January, I was pleased to sign a Memorandum of Understanding with Colombia to expand bilateral cooperation in the resources sector. This agreement will, for example, enhance information exchanges around best practice regulation, facilitate greater investment linkages and create closer ties between investors and educational institutions in this area. I am pictured here at the signing with the Colombian Ambassador to Australia, Dr Clemencia Forero-Ucros.

MedAdvisor App Launch

On 22 January, I attended the launch of MedAdvisor's new medication management app. MedAdvisor is a new company, based in Camberwell, which employs around 20 people and is listed on the ASX. The new app focuses on improving health outcomes by enabling patients and their carers to manage their medications from their smart phone, tablet or computer. It is a good example of innovative ideas in my electorate, creating highly skilled jobs and enhancing productivity. 

Address to Australia China Business Council

On 21 January, I spoke to the Victorian branch of the Australia China Business Council (ACBC) at Melbourne Park, where Tennis Australia organised the event to coincide with this year's Australian Open. In my address, I covered the new opportunities that have been created by the China-Australia Free Trade Agreement which will, when fully rolled out, see 96 per cent of Australia's goods exports enter China duty-free. 

Kooyong Christmas Giving Tree

On 22 December, I presented donations made to our Kooyong Christmas Giving Tree to Servants Community Housing in Hawthorn and Kew. More than $10,000 in cash and gift vouchers, and a large volume of food, new clothing and blankets, were donated by our community to SCH this Christmas as it houses and cares for some of the most vulnerable in our community. SCH provides affordable accommodation to 89 homeless members of our local community – providing a warm bed, hot meals, stability and respect. This year brings the Kooyong Christmas Giving Tree donations to tens of thousands of dollars since I started the Tree three years ago. The season, and our community Tree, always brings out the best in our community.
