Questions without Notice
I thank the member for that question. Australia does have a combination of economic strengths that are unrivalled elsewhere in the developed world. Australia is the world's twelfth-largest economy. Overnight we have had the G8 meeting in Northern Ireland. I think it pays a little just to think about comparisons between those G8 economies and the Australian economy, because I think this does demonstrate our economic strengths that are not acknowledged—particularly by those opposite.
