This Post has Comments Off on Australia’s Economic Challenge in Asia with The Hon Andrew Robb AO MP
Australia’s future prosperity depends on how well it marries structural change in the economy to new opportunities emerging in Asia, especially China. At a time of deep shifts in the Australian economy, the challenge is to find new sources of growth and investment beyond mining.
The Hon Andrew Robb AO MP, one of the Abbott Government’s most senior ministers, will address AustCham members on how the Government’s new economic philosophy will address these challenges by improving the nation’s competitiveness in trade and investment, especially in Asia.
Prior to his appointment as Minister for Trade and Investment, Mr Robb amassed diverse experience in private and public sector roles. With qualifications in Agricultural Science and Economics, he led the Cattle Council of Australia then the National Farmers’ Federation before serving as Federal Director of the Liberal Party, masterminding the successful 1996 election campaign. From 1997 to 2004, Mr Robb advised major companies in Australia and overseas, including the Packer family, Chevron’s Gorgon gas project and Sinclair Knight Merz. Mr Robb has also served on the boards of the Garvan Medical Research Foundation, the Menzies Research Centre, the Big Brother Big Sister mentoring organisation and the Australian Direct Marketing Association.
In 2003 Mr Robb was awarded the Office of the Order of Australia for his service to agriculture, politics and the community. He was elected to Parliament in 2004 and appointed as Australia’s first federal Minister responsible for investment in 2013.
