We are delighted that Menna Rawlings CMG will join members for an afternoon tea at Grafton Street on 11 May. Menna has been British High Commissioner to Australia since April 2015.
Menna joined the FCO in 1989 and has served in a wide range of Diplomatic Service roles. She was mostly recently a member of the Foreign and Commonwealth Management Board as HR Director. This followed postings to Washington DC, Ghana, Israel, Kenya and Brussels. In London, she has served as Private Secretary to the Permanent Under Secretary as well as in Press Office and the Africa and EU Directorates.
Australia is of course, a key commonwealth ally, and Australian officials and businesses are known to be seeking closer links with UK in both products and services.
This discussion will therefore offer a helpful guide to current political and business thinking and most appropriate approaches to take when considering and dealing with Australia.
