On Thursday, 17th of June 2021, the German Australian Business Council hosted its first in-person event for 2021 in honour of Ambassador H.E. Philip Green, AO, Ambassador to Germany, Switzerland and Liechtenstein. After a long period of COVID-19 restrictions, the dinner event at the Main Nizza restaurant on the banks of the Main River in Frankfurt was long anticipated by members and guests alike.
H.E. Philip Green used the opportunity to speak about the new bilateral Enhanced Strategic Partnership between Australia and Germany, signed by Foreign Ministers Marise Payne and Heiko Maas on the 10th of June 2021 (see download and link below). The Enhanced Strategic Partnership demonstrates the commitment of Australia and Germany to defend and advance the two countries’ common values and interests and to intensify bilateral and multilateral cooperation.
The Ambassador also spoke about the new Australia-Germany Hydrogen Accord which was announced by Prime Minister Scott Morrison and Chancellor Angela Merkel during the G7 Summit in Cornwall during the previous weekend.
The German Australian Business Council would like to warmly thank H.E Philip Green, the Australian Trade and Investment Commission, our sponsor ANZ and our members and friends for their support in making this event such a success.
