Australia in a global marketplace

Wednesday 21 May 2014, 6:30pm - 7:30pm

Join Andrew Robb AO, Minister for Trade and Investment, as he argues the case for keeping markets open to trade and investment, and staying the course of market-led reforms.

'The bedrock of Australia’s economic success is our openness to international trade, foreign investment, new technology and skilled migration. The incontrovertible evidence in Australia and throughout the world is that open markets create wealth for all citizens.' – Andrew Robb AO

You're invited to hear this 30-minute talk and take part in the Q&A, facilitated by Jill Singer.

This event is part of Big ideas under the dome, a thought-provoking lecture series that brings to Melbourne great minds in the arts, culture, social justice and science to discuss, debate and reflect on the big ideas and issues of our time.
