Wednesday Lunch at Lowy: New South Wales' place in the world - Barry O’Farrell presentation

In federal systems like Australia, international policy and broader international engagement are usually, and incorrectly, seen as solely matters for the national government. However, state governments can and do play an important role in Australia's global engagement, both economically and socially. New South Wales, as the largest and most cosmopolitan state in the country, is well placed to significantly deepen economic ties in Asia and beyond. Barry O'Farrell MP, leader of the NSW Liberal Party, spoke about New South Wales' place in the world.Barry O'Farrell
