Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2011 Week 12 Hansard (Thursday, 27 October 2011) . . Page.. 5175 ..
MR SMYTH: Minister, will any of your Green coalition colleagues be accompanying you on this tour?
MR BARR: No.
MR SPEAKER: Dr Bourke, a supplementary.
MR SPEAKER: Order. Dr Bourke has the floor, thank you.
DR BOURKE: What meetings will you be undertaking while leading the trade mission in Washington DC next week?
MR BARR: In addition to supporting the businesses in their programs, I will be taking the opportunity to meet with a range of business leaders and government officials to discuss economic development opportunities. These meetings include the Greater Washington Board of Trade, the Maryland Department of Business and Economic Development and the Smithsonian Institute’s National Air and Space Museum. We will also have the opportunity to meet with the Australian ambassador, the Hon Kim Beazley.
The trade mission next week really will be a fantastic opportunity for the eight local companies I mentioned in my previous answer to put into action the strategies that we have been developing with them over the last 10 weeks whilst they have been participating in the exporting services to government pilot. It is a great example of what the ACT government can do to showcase the unique expertise and government services that Canberra companies have to offer.
