The Hon Julie Bishop MP

Ms. Bishop has served as the Member for Curtin in the House of Representatives since 1998 and was Australia’s first female Foreign Minister, serving from September 2013 to August 2018, following four years in the role of Shadow Minister for Foreign Affairs and Trade. She was the Deputy Leader of the Liberal Party from December 2007 to August 2018.

As Minister for Foreign Affairs Ms Bishop led the development of the 2017 Australian Foreign Policy White Paper – the first review of Australia’s international engagement for 14 years. She has overseen the single largest expansion of Australia’s overseas diplomatic presence in 40 years, strengthened Australia’s key strategic and economic relationships and enhanced Australia’s engagement in the Indo Pacific region, particularly in neighbouring Pacific Island countries. Most recently, Ms Bishop was awarded the inaugural US Embassy Eleanor Roosevelt Award for Leadership Excellence.

She previously served as a Cabinet Minister from 2006 to 2007 in the Howard Government as Minister for Education, Science and Training and as the Minister Assisting the Prime Minister for Women’s Issues. Ms Bishop was Minister for Ageing from 2003 until 2006. She has also served on a number of parliamentary and policy committees including as Chair of the Joint Standing Committee on Treaties.

Ms Bishop is also an advocate for women in leadership and for promoting greater engagement in public life. We are honoured to welcome her to Hong Kong.
