Guy stands up for Australia's foreign policy

November 22, 2018

The Victorian Liberal Party has promised to kick-start setting up a trade office in Jerusalem within its first 100 days of office - in line with Conservative Party calls to move Australia's embassy from Tel Aviv to the Israeli capital.

Opposition Leader Matthew Guy has unveiled the Coalition’s Victorian election plan for the first 100 days of government which promises to establish a new trade offices in Jerusalem, moving the current Israeli trade office from Tel Aviv.

Mr Guy said Jerusalem was a growing start up hub and he wanted to help more Victorian businesses tap into business opportunities.

The announcement comes after Prime Minister Scott Morrison revealed he was weighing up moving the Australian embassy to Jerusalem, prompting sharp rebukes from both the Indonesian and Malaysian governments. There have, since the Wentworth by-election lead-up when the 'weighing up' was announced, been conflicting reports on whether the government has any intention to move the embassy.

The Victorian Opposition leader's move also comes in the wake of a spate of high profile attacks on the Andrews government for acting out of its station by signing a memorandum of understanding with the Chinese government regarding China’s expansionist 'Belt and Road Initiative'.
