Address to the Energy Networks Conference

On 20 May 2016 I spent the day in Adelaide highlighting the Turnbull Government’s plan for an innovative energy sector at the Energy Networks Conference at the Adelaide Convention Centre. In my speech I announced that the Government has asked the CSIRO to develop a low emissions technology roadmap that will highlight areas of potential growth in Australia’s clean technology sector, map the development of new emissions reduction technologies, and identify opportunities to be part of future global energy supply chains. I spent the morning with the Liberal candidate for Adelaide, David Colvic, before joining the Liberal Candidate for Boothby, Nicolle Flint in a visit to a great family-run earth business with projects around the country. I also joined the energetic Member for Hindmarsh, Matt Williams as we met with locals to talk about the Turnbull Governments strong economic plan for jobs and growth.

The Australian Competitive Advantage Forum

On 19 May, I spoke on a panel at The Australian's Competitive Advantage Forum in Sydney. The panel included the Premier of New South Wales, Mike Baird, Citigroup Australia Chair, Sam Mostyn, ANZ Chairman, David Gonski, and moderator John Durie from The Australian. 

The forum was designed to bring government and business leaders together to discuss what Australia needs to do to maximise its competitive advantage, particularly in engaging with Asia. 

I used the opportunity to emphasis that one of Australia's biggest strengths is our focus on innovation. Notably, the resources sector is at the forefront, particularly with its use of automated equipment. I also reiterated the Government's welcoming approach to foreign investment, which remains integral to our economic development. 

I'm pictured here with the forum's panellists and moderator

Visit to Seaford and Langwarrin with Chris Crewther, Liberal Candidate for Dunkley

On 16 May 2016, I visited Seaford and Langwarrin with Chris Crewther, the Liberal Candidate for Dunkley. Chris took me to Nutech Paints, Australia’s largest supplier of premium roof coatings, where we were joined by the retiring member, the Hon Bruce Billson MP, and spoke about the 2016-17 Budget and opportunities for small businesses in the industry. We also visited Harfin Fly Reels, an innovative small business in Dunkley that manufactures high quality fishing reels for domestic use and export. It was also terrific to do street walks with Chris in Seaford and Langwarrin and meet locals at many small businesses in the area. I am pictured below with Chris at Nutech, Harfin and in Seaford.

Special birthday celebrations

It was wonderful to meet with some special local residents at Rylands in Kew for their birthdays including centenarian, May Lowe and former Cabinet Minister in the Fraser government, Dame Margaret Guilfoyle.

4th Kew Scouts sausage sizzle

It was great to support the 4th Kew Scouts at their sausage sizzle at Bunnings in Hawthorn on 15 May. During the visit I helped Simone and the volunteers from 4th Kew Scouts bbq sausages for their annual fundraiser. It’s wonderful to have 19 active scout groups in our local area and with over 1200 members the Boroondara District is one of the largest in Australia. 

On the hustings with the Frydenberg for Kooyong team

On  14 March I was joined at our new campaign office in Hawthorn by the Frydenberg for Kooyong team - including Archie a very loyal pet pooch who looked great in my campaign tee shirt - before we spread out across the electorate.  I visited many of the local shopping strips for our first weekend of campaigning including Kew Junction, North Balwyn Village, Greythorn shops, Glenferrie Road, Whitehorse Road Balwyn and Camberwell Junction. During the street walks I was shadowed by a news team from Lateline who produced a new segment for the campaign called Poll Position which follows various local MPs around their electorates.

Address to NSW Minerals Council Industry and Suppliers Conference in Sydney

On 13 May 2016, I was pleased to address the 2016 New South Wales Minerals Council Industry and Suppliers Conference in Sydney. My speech focused on promoting innovation in the Australian resources sector, as well as the Government’s approach to supporting the sector to deliver growth and jobs. As I mentioned in my speech, New South Wales has a special place in Australia’s mining history—from the Hunter, through the Central West, to the Illawarra—with Australia’s first shipment of coal leaving Newcastle port more than 200 years ago. My speech is available here.

Maytime Fair at Xavier College

It was great to join Xavier College Principal, Dr Chris Hayes and members of the Jesuit Mission for the Maytime Fair on 7 May. The Fair, which raises funds for the Jesuit Mission, has been hosted by Xavier College for 63 years. All of the funds raised from the Maytime Fair go directly to help people in countries including Cambodia, China, East Timor, India, Myanmar Pakistan, Thailand and The Philippines and Africa. 

2016 Kooyong Community Forum

On 6 May I was delighted to host the Kooyong Community Forum which brought together three levels of government with the participation of John Pesutto MP, State Shadow Attorney General and Member for Hawthorn and Cr Jim Parke, Mayor of Boroondara. The forum was very well attended and guests had the opportunity to hear a brief summary of current issues from each of the guest speakers and then ask questions. Some of the issues that were raised included changes to superannuation announced in the budget, foreign investment in residential real estate as well as planning and development. It is always good to hear from constituents regardless of whether their concerns are federal, state or local - as it helps me to better respond to their concerns. 

Institute of Governance and NATSEM Post-Budget Lunch

On 5th March I joined a panel for the Institute of Governance and NATSEM post-budget lunch to discuss the Turnbull Government’s plan for jobs and growth. Over 200 people attended the discussion facilitated by Virginia Hausegger at Parliament House in Canberra. Michelle Grattan, Saul Eslake, Shadow Assistant Treasurer Andrew Leigh and Professor Mark Evans were also on the panel and it was great to see many students from University of Canberra participate in the event.
