30 June 2017 President’s ReportPlease note the brilliant speaker for the AGM who brings excellent background and comments forward Kindly note the accounts



One can be excused for thinking the US according t o media is being run by one man.The Article “Don’t bash Trump on trade :S&P ” (AFR 31 August) was symptomatic of this .
The issue really becomes whether the US has on balance benefited from its role in globalization and whether those who have been left behind are collateral damage .

If this is the case then the issue is whether the deliverer
Is to blame ie free trade or whether the gains can be better distributed and the real policies can be articulated better.


“Portents of a dark age” by Andrew Clarke over Xmas (AFR 22-27 Dec) provided a wonderful portrayal of the glass half full approach of our Foreign Minister Julie Bishop. What an outstanding job she has done to date. Her optimism and statement of Australia taking advantage as opportunities arise and a prediction of a stronger role for Australia in 2017 is most praiseworthy. The dark age as alluded to surely refers to the problems of 2016 hopefully left behind as terrorism madness and criminal activity finally is resulting in global attempts to eradicate it and following the implementation of more vigilant internal security measures. One can only heap a lot of praise on internal and external security forces. Australia’s 2017 role on the international stage via membership of groups such as G20 and Asian Regional Forum and East Asian Summit will be most important in calming the rough waters in the China South Sea and coping with North Korea. Australia’s role in balancing relationships and building cooperation will be very significant in 2017.We are lucky to have a Foreign Minister who “radiates her optimistic zeitgeist”(spirit of the time)
