This week I will visit the United States to advance trade, tourism and investment opportunities for Australia.
In New York I will deliver the annual G’Day USA Economic Outlook Address, highlighting to US businesses and policymakers Australia’s standing as a high-quality investment destination.
With the American Australian Association, I will also co-chair the inaugural G’Day USA CEO Trade Policy Roundtable.
While in New York I will attend ANZAC Day events to remember our fallen servicemen and women. In July this year, Australia and the United States will mark the 100th anniversary of the Battle of Hamel in France, where American and Australian troops first fought side by side.
In Los Angeles I will attend the annual Milken Global Conference to promote Australia as a trade and investment partner.
Between 2005 and 2016, two-way investment between Australia and the United States grew by more than 130 per cent to A$1.5 trillion. The total stock of US investment in Australia was A$861 billion at the end of 2016, making the United States Australia’s largest foreign investor by far.
Our $1.5 trillion investment relationship is the largest Australia has with any country and supports around 472,000 jobs in both countries.
