NSW Premier on international trade tour


New South Wales Premier Dominic Perrottet is taking a trade mission to Japan, South Korea and India to boost his state and attract more international investment.

Mr Perrottet hopes to “seize the moment” as global trade begins to pick up speed.

“The pandemic has slowed global trade relations, but New South Wales is open for business,” he said.

The trade mission wants to see foreign companies pour more money into growing markets, including clean energy technologies.

“These are the economic opportunities that will create high-quality jobs for current and future generations, but only if we seize the moment,” Perrottet said.

But the trade mission also wants to increase tourist numbers and connect NSW’s education sector to an international audience.

Mr. Perrottet’s first stop is Japan on Thursday, where he will visit Tokyo and Hiroshima, before heading to Seoul, the South Korean capital.

India will mark the end of the trip with the Prime Minister who will be joined by New South Wales Trade Minister Stuart Ayres during his visit to Mumbai and Bengaluru.

“NSW is poised to make the most of the huge opportunities between our two nations,” Mr Ayres said.

The commercial ride ends on July 29.

It is Mr Perrottet’s first overseas trip as Prime Minister since replacing Gladys Berejiklian last year, but also the first for a NSW Premier since the COVID-19 pandemic took hold. given the closure of the Australian borders.
