Media Release
Dorinda Cox 18 Oct 2022

The landmark Green Economy Agreement (GEA) between Australia and Singapore may be the beginnings of an earnest move towards decarbonising the country.

Lines attributable to Greens spokesperson for Trade, Yamatji-Noongar Woman Senator Dorinda Cox:

“I welcome Australia’s new trade agreement with Singapore and look forward to the opportunity of strengthening Indigenous diplomacy between our two countries.

"In August, I was pleased to meet with High Commissioner to Singapore, Will Hodgman, and heard from him Singapore’s priorities for food and energy security. Australia is uniquely placed to be a renewables superpower, powering the world through locally produced green energy.

“Given the proximity of Darwin to Singapore, this is a fantastic opportunity to transform the Middle Arm precinct into a globally competitive, sustainable export hub.”
