Collaboration, Innovation and Opportunity, Report of the Australia-Germany Advisory Group

13.11.15 AGAG

The Australia-Germany Advisory Group was established in 2014 by leaders to examine ways to build even closer ties between the two countries. Co-chaired by Australian Finance Minister Senator the Hon Mathias Cormann and German Minister of State at the Federal Foreign Office Professor Dr Maria Böhmer, the group comprised senior leaders from business, academia, and the arts.

Containing 59 recommendations across five themes — trade and investment, strategic dialogue, science and education, diversity and integration, and culture and sport — the report provides a blueprint to take the already strong bilateral partnership to a new level.

The report was presented to Prime Minister Turnbull and Chancellor Merkel in Berlin on 13 November 2015.
