Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Trade Mr Tim Fischer today welcomed the appointment of Mr Charles Jamieson as Managing Director of Austrade.

"Mr Jamieson is a pragmatic and professional trade facilitator who has built a strong reputation around the world in various postings," Mr Fischer said.

"His recent activities based in Dubai, covering South Asia, the Middle East and parts of Africa equip him particularly well for this position, especially with the India New Horizons project later this year."

Mr Fischer praised outgoing Austrade Managing Director Mr Ralph Evans for his huge contribution to Austrade over five years including the reshaping of Austrade over that period.
