FISCHER WELCOMES AUSTRADE APPOINTMENT
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.
