I am visiting Hong Kong this week to meet senior government officials and investors.

During the two-day visit I will highlight the attractiveness of Australia as an investment destination and explain why our economy has emerged as the stand-out performer in the developed world.

I will meet with Gregory So, the Secretary for Commerce and Economic Development, as well as members of the Australian business community at the Australian Chamber of Commerce Hong Kong and Macau (AustCham).

While in Hong Kong I will address the 23rd Credit Lyonnais Securities Asia (CLSA) forum on the growing significance to the Australian economy of services exports.

The CLSA forum is one of the most important conferences on the Asian investor calendar and typically attracts some of the world’s leading thinkers, business people and investors.

At the CLSA forum I will also meet with Hong Kong and mainland China investors whose significant investments are driving jobs and growth in our Australian economy. 

In 2015, Hong Kong was the sixth largest foreign investor in Australia, with total stock at $85.4 billion, and Australia in turn has some $50.7 billion invested in Hong Kong.
