Rudd Ministry is balance of fresh faces and old hands
"The new Rudd Ministry is a strong team with depth and talent and a balance between fresh faces and old hands," Australian Industry Group Chief Executive Heather Ridout has said.
“The incoming Treasurer, Wayne Swan, has demonstrated as Shadow Minister a willingness to actively engage with business and an understanding of the global challenges we face – both qualities which will serve him well in his new position.
“From an industry perspective, a number of other portfolio areas are particularly relevant. These include innovation and industry, foreign affairs, trade, defence, environment, communications, immigration, infrastructure and business regulation.
“The new Ministers responsible for these portfolios are well known to us. We warmly congratulate them on their appointments and we look forward to a positive and constructive relationship in the months ahead,” Ridout added.
