The Hon Malcolm Turnbull MP


05 September 2016

  • As the G20 progresses, you can see the key themes that Australia is advancing, and of course themes that are shared by the other leading economies of the world - innovation, trade, open markets.

  • PRIME MINISTER TURNBULL: Well Prime Minister it’s wonderful to see you formally this morning. We had a very good discussion last night for the G20 and congratulations on assuming the Prime Ministership.

  • I will meet Australia's key strategic and economic partners from the region at the Association of South East Asian Nations (ASEAN)-Australia Summit, and the East Asia Summit (EAS) in Vientiane, Laos, from 7-8 September.

  • Speaking as a father and indeed a grandfather it is a happy day, Father’s Day. It’s a reminder too that everything that we are doing here at the G20 is about families.

  • I want to say how pleased I am to be here with so many distinguished businessmen and women including the panellists of course and so many from Australia. I can see a few very familiar faces over there very close to the front. I want to acknowledge and thank CCPIT Chairman Jiang Zengwei for his leadership in bringing the B20 together here in this most beautiful city of Hangzhou. I’m sorry I won’t be able to stay here for all of your deliberations. In a previous life I could’ve been a delegate to the B20 of course as a businessman myself who found his way into politics. And I think that perhaps that experience makes me even more determined to say that we should encourage you all and encourage and thank the B20 for its vitally important contribution to the G20 process.

  • Thank you very much Mr President and may I thank you very much for your generous hospitality hosting the G20 here in this beautiful city of Hangzhou. Thank you very much for the very generous hospitality you showed to my wife Lucy and I when we visited you and Madame Peng earlier in the year, in April. The G20 agenda that you have set is one which I am delighted to say - my Ministers and officials have strongly supported China in addressing the measures that will be so critical to ensure that we have stronger economic growth and more opportunities for people in all of the countries of the G20 - but indeed in the whole world.

  • This week I will join Leaders of the world’s largest advanced and emerging economies in Hangzhou, China for the 2016 G20 Leaders’ Summit (4-5 September 2016). I am travelling with a clear and simple objective: to advance reforms that will help the Australian economy grow and create more jobs.

  • Prime Minister: Hello. Journalist: What did you make of last night Prime Minister, and what did you say to your colleagues?

  • I am pleased to announce that His Excellency General the Honourable Sir Peter Cosgrove AK MC (Retd), Governor-General of the Commonwealth of Australia, has accepted my request to lead Australia’s representation at the 2016 Paralympic Games in Rio de Janeiro.

  • PRIME MINISTER: Good morning Neil, great to be with you.
