Australian Government coat of arms

Prime Minister of Australia

The Hon Tony Abbott MP

Attendance at the World Economic Forum

19 January 2014

Prime Minister

I will attend this year’s World Economic Forum (WEF) meeting in Davos, Switzerland.

The WEF’s annual Davos meeting brings together some 2,500 business and political leaders to discuss key global issues.

It will be an opportunity to showcase Australia and the Government’s reform agenda to international political and business leaders.

I will meet with Heads of Government in attendance, host Australia’s B20 delegation of business leaders and deliver a keynote address to outline Australia’s approach to the Presidency of the G20.

Chairing the G20 this year gives our country a unique chance to influence the international economic debate.

We should make the most of our G20 Presidency to help provide economic leadership to the wider world and promote our attractiveness as an investment destination.

The Hon Warren Truss MP will be Acting Prime Minister in my absence.
