Visit to Japan
This week I will travel to Japan to represent Australia at the G7 Trade Ministers’ Meeting in Osaka.
This is the first time that Australia has been invited to a G7 Trade Ministers’ Meeting as an outreach partner.
At a time of unprecedented global challenges, joining the G7 Trade Ministers’ Meeting provides a valuable opportunity to meet with G7 partners, as well as industry representatives, and a number of other counterparts, to both advance Australia’s interests, and open the door for increased cooperation.
I will participate in a number of sessions addressing how the G7 and partners can work together on supply chain resilience, economic security, sustainable trade, and support for the rules-based multilateral trading system.
I will visit the Osaka Expo Association to view the site of Australia’s pavilion for Expo 2025 Osaka, Kansai.
I will also meet European Commission Executive Vice President Valdis Dombrovskis to progress outstanding issues in the Australia-EU free trade negotiations, pressing for the best possible outcome for our producers, our businesses, our workers, and our consumers.
I have made it very clear Australia will not sign a deal for the sake of it, and I meant it.
