An exclusive opportunity for members to engage with Australia's Minister for Foreign Affairs, Hon Julie Bishop MP.

The President and Vice-President of the Irish Australian Chamber of Commerce are delighted to host a Breakfast Forum with Hon Julie Bishop MP, Minister for Foreign Affairs in Australia's Federal Coalition Government. Minister Bishop is also the Deputy Leader of the Liberal Party and has served as the Member for the constituency of Curtin in the House of Representatives since 1998.

This is the first visit to Ireland by an Australian Foreign Minister for 13 years and will provide Members of the Chamber with a unique opportunity to engage and discuss Irish Australian relations first-hand with the Minister.  His Excellency Richard Andrews, Australia's Ambassador to Ireland (and Patron of the Chamber) will attend with Minister Bishop.

 

Julie Bishop is the Minister for Foreign Affairs in Australia's Federal Coalition Government. She is also the Deputy Leader of the Liberal Party and has served as the Member for Curtin in the House of Representatives since 1998.

Minister Bishop was sworn in as Australia's first female Foreign Minister on 18 September 2013 following four years in the role of Shadow Minister for Foreign Affairs and Trade.

As Minister for Foreign Affairs, Minister Bishop has overseen the single largest expansion of Australia's overseas diplomatic presence in 40 years, introduced the New Colombo Plan to support Australian undergraduate students to study and undertake internships in the Indo-Pacific region, and established the innovationXchange within the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade to develop bold and creative solutions to long standing development challenges.

We are honoured to have the opportunity to host such a significant visitor from Australia at a Chamber event. 
 

This event is for Members’ only and we expect a fantastic turnout to give Minister Bishop a warm welcome to Ireland. 

We would like to thank Helen Kelly of Corporate Members, Matheson, for her generosity in hosting this event.

KINDLY HOSTED BY
