Article – PM's Visit to Singapore

27 June 2015
The Prime Minister

I will travel to Singapore for meetings with President Tan and Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong to progress Australia’s economic, defence and security links.

In its 50 years as a nation, Singapore has become a dynamic economic and security partner for Australia.

It is Australia’s sixth largest source of foreign direct investment and our fifth largest trading partner with total trade of $30 billion.

The Minister for Trade and Investment and senior business leaders will join me to promote an Australian economy that is open for business.

Following the release of the Government’s Northern Australia White Paper, I will also host a high-level roundtable on investment opportunities in our great north with Singapore’s leading investors and the First Ministers of the Northern Territory, Queensland and Western Australia.

I am honoured to be delivering the 35th Singapore Lecture, entitled ‘Our Common Challenges: Strengthening Security in the Region’ under the distinguished chairmanship of Singapore’s Deputy Prime Minister Mr Teo Chee Hean.
