Today the Parliamentary Secretary to the Prime Minister, the Hon Josh Frydenberg MP, was delighted to announce the winner of the G20 Commemorative Stamp Competition. ‘I would like to congratulate MacKillop College in Werribee, Victoria, for winning the G20 Commemorative Stamp Competition’, Mr Frydenberg said.
It's good to be here in Brisbane with Premier Campbell Newman, with the State Treasurer, with the Brisbane Lord Mayor, with the local Member Teresa Gambaro, to celebrate the fact that today is the beginning of Australia's G20 presidency. From today until the 1st of December next year, Australia is the President of the G20.
Today marks the official commencement of Australia’s Presidency of the G20. Hosting the G20 in 2014 is a big opportunity and a big responsibility for Australia. It allows us to help shape the global economic agenda for the benefit of all countries, and provides the opportunity to showcase the best of our nation.
