  • Australia Can Learn Key Lessons

    6 December 2016 / Luke Malpass & Aaron Patrick / Australian Financial Review
    Featuring John Key, Prime Minister of New Zealand

    Key has been held up as a model for Australian conservatives, to his first speech, when it was clear that he would defeat Tony Abbott as Liberal Party leader in September last year, Malcolm Turnbull singled out Key for praise. At a Trans-Tasman Business Circle lunch in February, Turnbull described Key as "a great role model for me and for any leader".

  • PM hailed for lifting NZ's economy

    6 December 2016 / Damon Kitney / The Australian
    Featuring John Key, Prime Minister of New Zealand

    Trans-Tasman Business Circle CEO Johnny Weiss pointed out how Mr Key was able to resonate with everyday New Zealanders and “take the people with him”.
    “He gave the people self-belief and pride. We are now perceived by Australian businesspeople, who come to visit, as innovative, smart and nimble,’’ he said, also noting how Mr Key had driven the growth of the nation’s tourism sector.

  • The new hot spot for Australian start-ups

    26 November 2016 / Catherine Armitage / The Sydney Morning Herald

    Up to 40 Australian trade delegations have visited Israel this year: "a record for sure", says commissioner Ethy Levy of the Israel Trade and Economic Commission in Australia. NSW Premier Mike Baird led one in April; Greater Sydney Commission chief commissioner and prime ministerial spouse Lucy Turnbull led one in May.

    A further deluge of Australians hit in late September, coinciding with the city's annual DLD Innovation Festival in Tel Aviv where start-ups, governments, multinationals and venture capitalists from all over the world congregate in search of deals. At least six separate delegations including from Telstra, the AMP, Visy Industries and the Trans-Tasman Business Circle toured the start-up capital's innovation ecosystem.
