Asia-Pacific Aviation/Aerospace Leaders Summit

Welcome to the 2013 Asia Pacific Aviation and Aerospace Leaders Summit.It is appropriate that the summit is being held in Victoria, the home of the aviation and aerospace industries in Australia.Victoria witnessed the first powered and first passenger flights in Australia and is now the home of the Royal Australian Air Force, Jetstar and Tiger Airlines.

As Australia’s manufacturing hub, Melbourne hosts a range of aerospace companies such as Boeing, as well as local leaders Marand and Rosebank, who make components for the Joint Strike Force project. The Victorian Government sees this industry as central to our economy and strategically important to our region. Our aviation policy focuses on infrastructure development, investment attraction, skills improvement and creating a competitive environment.

That is why we are creating a National Aviation Services precinct right here in Melbourne to co-locate skills development, research, manufacturing and maintenance in a dynamic hub.

This is especially important given that the number of airliners in the Asia Pacific region is predicted to triple to more than 13,000 by 2030 – accounting for a third of new aircraft deliveries worldwide.

The Asia Pacific Aviation and Aerospace Leaders Summit is an important part of addressing commercial and general aviation growth, sustainability, infrastructure, safety and standards which will underpin the success of the aviation and aerospace industries of our region.

 

Yours Sincerely

 

The Hon. Gordon Rich-Phillips MLC

Assistant Treasurer and Minister for the Aviation Industry

Anthony's Portrait

The Hon. Anthony Albanese MP

Australian Government

Minister for Infrastructure and Transport

On behalf of the Australian Government I invite you to the 2013 Asia Pacific Aviation and Aerospace Leaders’ Summit.

In December 2009 the Australian Government released the first ever aviation policy statement, the National Aviation White
Paper, which highlights the importance of the aviation and aerospace industries to Australia’s economy and way of life.

At a time when many aviation markets around the world are struggling, Australian aviation continues to grow with 82 million
domestic and international passengers taking to our skies in the past year.

This Summit is timely in light of the recent release of the Australia in the Asian Century White Paper. It is also a golden opportunity to promote Australia’s aviation industry to the world.

I look forward to welcoming you to Melbourne, Australia.

Gordon Rich-Phillips Head Shot

The Hon. Gordon Rich-Phillips MLC

Victorian Government

Assistant Treasurer and Minister for the Aviation Industry

Prior to being elected to Parliament Gordon was Aviation Manager in the Department of State Development working to build Victoria's tourism and business investment performance. During his two years with the department, Gordon worked to grow Melbourne’s international airline services by more than 50%.
A pilot since the age of 16, Gordon holds a Commercial Pilot Licence and Multi Engine Command Instrument Rating and has flown a variety of single and twin engine aircraft throughout much of south east Australia.
It is this long connection with the aviation industry in Australia that led to Gordon’s involvement in politics, when in the mid 1990’s he worked on a number of successful campaigns with the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Associations lobbying the then Keating Government over reforms in the aviation industry. This experience highlighted to Gordon what can be achieved through participating in the political process.
Gordon was elected to Parliament in 1999 as the Member for Eumemmerring Province. In 2002 Gordon was elected Secretary of the Parliamentary Liberal Party. Between 2002 and 2005 Gordon was Liberal Party Spokesman for the Commonwealth Games, Sport & Recreation (2002-04) and Manufacturing and Export.
In 2005 Gordon was promoted to Shadow Cabinet and held the positions of Shadow Minister for Finance & TAC and Shadow Minister for the Commonwealth Games.
Following the restructure of the Upper House which saw the abolition of the 22 provinces and the introduction of 8 regions, Gordon was pre-selected by the Liberal Party to the No. 1 spot on the Liberal Party ticket, and was subsequently elected as the Member for South Eastern Metropolitan Region in November 2006.
 
Following the 2006 election Gordon was elevated to the position of Shadow Assistant Treasurer and Shadow Minister for Finance (including WorkCover & TAC) giving him responsibility for all Treasury & Finance matters in the Upper House. As well as this, Gordon was Shadow Minister for Community Development and Shadow Minister for Information Technology.
Following the 2010 election of the Baillieu Coalition Government, Gordon was sworn in as Assistant Treasurer, Minister for Aviation Industry and Minister for Technology.
 
Elected at the age of 25, Gordon is the youngest person ever elected to the Victorian Legislative Council and is currently the youngest Cabinet Minister in Victoria. Gordon has a Bachelor of Business (Economics, Accounting & Law).
