  • PM delivers remarks at the conclusion of the G-20 Leaders’ Summit in Brisbane
    Good afternoon. I’d like to begin by thanking Prime Minister Abbott and the Australian public for the warm greeting they’ve given me, Laureen and our entire delegation.   Also much appreciated were Prime Minister Abbott’s warm words of solidarity and support following the brazen terror attacks at our National War Memorial and in our Parliament and at Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu.  I know I speak for all Canadians when I say that in a dangerous world we take reassurance and comfort from our friendship with reliable, longstanding allies like Australia.

    Well, thank you, Prime Minister, thank you, John, for your kind and your warm welcome here. It’s wonderful to be here in Auckland as we say, just a short 22-hour flight from Ottawa.

    Good afternoon. First of all, I would like to thank you, Mr. Premier, and the Chinese people, for always being so welcoming. We particularly appreciate that our hosts have been kind enough to understand the need for us to be in Ottawa for Remembrance Day. In the past two days, we’ve visited Hangzhou and the impressive Alibaba facilities there where of course we were able to discuss new business opportunities that such developments represent for Canadian businesses and Canadian exporters.

    Mr. President, we are already nearing the end of your stay in our capital, following the first leg of your visit yesterday in my home province of Alberta. I must say that it is truly the first pan-Canadian French presidential visit, which reflects the reality of our modern relationship and we appreciate that. During our meeting in Banff, we were able to tour the garden of Canada-France relations. It is a large garden, of which the French planted over 400 years ago is still growing.
