Minister for Foreign Affairs - Speech at ACBC Canberra Networking Day

By: Minister for Foreign Affairs

To the National President and Chair, John Brumby, Chinese Ambassador – good to see you, to members and senators, former member Craig Emerson, ladies and gentlemen I am delighted to welcome you to Canberra and I applaud the efforts of the Australia China Business Council to deepen the relationship between our two countries. 
I also thank the Council for the role they played in ensuring the success of the visit by Premier Li Keqiang in March.
This networking day is a great opportunity for us here in Parliament to meet with stakeholders and experts and share perspectives and opportunities for the further deepening of our mutual engagement.
This bilateral relationship between Australia and China is growing stronger day-by-day. It is multifaceted, although our economic ties are a standout.
