Grand Ballroom, the Hotel Windsor, 103 Spring Street, Melbourne
Alexander Downer has been Australia’s Minister for Foreign Affairs since the election of the Howard Government in March 1996. He is the longest serving Minister for Foreign Affairs in Australia’s history.
During this period Mr Downer has been integrally involved in the remarkable and rapid growth in political and economic relations between Australia and China. He has been a leading participant in virtually all the high level meetings and other contacts between the leadership of the two countries.
The Luncheon will provide an excellent opportunity to hear at first hand the Minister’s important views on the development of the Australia China connection and the challenges and opportunities the future holds for Australia, China and East Asia.
