Australia in a global marketplace

Wednesday 21 May 2014, 6:30pm - 7:30pm

Join Andrew Robb AO, Minister for Trade and Investment, as he argues the case for keeping markets open to trade and investment, and staying the course of market-led reforms.

'The bedrock of Australia’s economic success is our openness to international trade, foreign investment, new technology and skilled migration. The incontrovertible evidence in Australia and throughout the world is that open markets create wealth for all citizens.' – Andrew Robb AO
