Prime Minister

I am pleased to announce I will meet with New Zealand Prime Minister the Rt Hon Jacinda Ardern during her visit to Sydney on 9–10 June.

Prime Minister Ardern will be the first foreign leader I will meet in Australia since the election.

The Australia–New Zealand relationship is unique in its closeness. We are partners and allies, and we share a relationship of family. Through our single economic market, our people-to-people ties and our shared interests in the region and around the world, Australia and New Zealand stand together.

Prime Minister Ardern’s visit will be an opportunity to build on Trans-Tasman cooperation, including economic recovery after COVID-19, the role of Indigenous peoples in the identity of both countries, climate change, support for the Pacific, and global trade and security.

I look forward to welcoming Prime Minister Ardern to Australia.
