Minister Grant Robertson will undertake a two day visit to Canberra, beginning tomorrow, covering both finance, and arts
and culture topics.
“On behalf of the Minister of Arts, Culture and Heritage I will attend the Meeting of Cultural Ministers, an
inter-governmental group fostering cooperation in the arts.”
“I’ll be talking with the Minister for Communications and the Arts, Senator Mitch Fifield, and State and Territories
representatives to further our mutual interests in arts and culture,” Grant Robertson said on Wednesday.
“This visit also provides a platform to talk about our work on sustainable careers in the creative sector and the work
we have begun to improve access to the arts particularly at community level.
“As Finance Minister, I’ll also be taking the opportunity to meet with my economic counterparts from the Government
including Treasurer Josh Frydenberg, and Minister for Finance Senator Mathias Cormann, to further the strong economic
relationship between our two countries.
