Australia’s Minister for International Development and the Pacific visits Global Development Group

Last week we were privileged to have the Honourable Steven Ciobo, Minister for International Development and the Pacific, visit our Brisbane office.

Executive Director, Geoff Armstrong, had opportunity to share about the scope and impact of Global Development Group partnerships around the world. Project office team members also passionately presented the work of seven significant projects to the minister, who listened with interest.

The Hon Steven Ciobo MP was sworn in as the Minister for International Development and the Pacific on 21 September, 2015. Mr Ciobo plans to focus, in particular, on Australia’s relationship with Pacific Island countries and strengthening the Government’s development focus on economic growth and poverty reduction.
