Visit to the United States

  • Media release

This week I will travel to San Francisco to lead Indo-Pacific Economic Framework (IPEF) and Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) Ministerial trade talks.

At the third in-person Indo-Pacific Economic Framework Ministerial Meetings, I will work with my counterparts to finalise a package of outcomes designed to lift and align trading standards, to build supply chain resilience, and promote clean energy investment so that trade flows more freely in the Indo-Pacific region.

At APEC I will champion Australia’s priorities of bolstering digital and services trade in our region, the economic empowerment of women and Indigenous Peoples, and advancing APEC’s work towards environmental and sustainability outcomes.

I look forward to welcoming new representatives when CPTPP Ministers meet on the sidelines of APEC.

I will also meet with several Ministerial counterparts to progress Australia’s trade and investment diversification agenda.
