Statement by the Hon Andrew Robb AO MP
Before Australia’s Foreign Minister, Stephen Smith, leaves the United States today, he should explain to the many angry US-based Australian businessmen and women what he intends to do to correct the perception, created in his “inept” speech to over 200 US investors in New York, that Australia is not an attractive investment option.
Reportedly, Mr Smith’s comments effectively “warned off” potential investors, leaving many of those who were considering putting money into our country having second thoughts.
At a time of global economic uncertainty and with the Australian economy in very strong shape, Australia needs a Government that is putting the nation’s interests first and not trying to score cheap political points overseas at the expense of Aussie jobs and investment.
