SYDNEY — Australia's Prime Minister Scott Morrison on Thursday called a national election for May 18, firing the starting gun on a campaign set to focus heavily on climate and the economy. The vote will decide whether the conservative government gets a rare third term in office -- and whether Morrison can beat the odds and hang on to power.

Entitled “Rethink”, the … [Read more...] about Australian friends support local capacity development

Việt Nam News speaks with Australia’s Assistant Minister for Trade, Tourism and Investment Mark Coulton. After 45 years of relations, what is the status of trade, investment and tourism between the two nations? I believe that we as two nations are as close together as we have ever been. After 45 years of diplomatic relations, we are now parts of ASEAN, we are part of the TPP11, but we also got our own strategic partnership signed by Prime Minister Nguyễn Xuân Phúc in Australia two weeks ago.
