14 November 2022

This week I will travel to India and Thailand to strengthen our bilateral and regional economic engagement.

I will also take the opportunity to showcase Australia as an attractive destination for investment, work and study.

In India, I will lead a cross-sectoral Australian delegation to the Bengaluru Tech Summit and represent Australia at the 3rd Ministerial Conference on Counter-Terrorism Financing in New Delhi.

In Thailand, I will represent Australia at the 2022 Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) Ministerial Meeting in Bangkok. 

I look forward to working with APEC Ministers on ways to strengthen our economies and unlock new sources of growth.

During my visit to Thailand, I will also sign the Australia-Thailand Strategic Economic Cooperation Arrangement (SECA) with His Excellency Mr Sansern Samalapa, Vice Minister of Commerce. 

SECA will contribute to strengthening the trade and economic linkages between Australia and Thailand. 

I look forward to deepening Australia’s engagement with these important partners.
