Prime Minister Tony Abbott gave a speech at an Asia Society Australia event in Canberra yesterday ahead of an unprecedented trade mission to Japan, Korea, and China in April.

The lunch, titled 'Open for Business: Embracing a New Era of Opportunity in North Asia', and keynote address set the scene for the important Australian engagement with three of our closest and most crucial regional partners.

Asia Society Australia has a strong commitment and focus on broadening the interests and understanding between Australia and the Asian business political and cultural leaders.
