About 100 Highlands businesswomen gathered
at Annesley in early September to hear words of
wisdom from a leading United States diplomat.
US consul-general Judith Fergin was guest speaker
at the annual Business Women's Network Southern
Highland (BWNSH) lunch.
She shared her story of juggling the roles of wife
and mother with a diplomatic career that has taken
her around the world including postings in Russia,
Indonesia, Germany, South Africa, Singapore, Liberia,
Washington DC, Canberra and most recently, Sydney.
Mrs Fergin has played an integral role in the
formation of foreign policies and trade agreements.
She said she sees the US and Australia working
towards the same outcomes on an international
"We both support free trade as essential to our
prosperity," she said.
"We both recognise we get further by working
together and we will collaborate more in the future.
"Australia is the top destination for US investment in
Asia. We employ some 320,000 people in Australia
-- we think we are an important part of Australia's
economy and we have a stake in its success."
The BWN meets on the rst Wednesday of each
month for breakfast at various locations with a
special lunch time meeting conducted annually.
