The Legislative Assembly is sometimes criticised for giving the impression it would rather be conducting foreign policy than the more mundane chores of running a city.
Andrew Barr has further armed such critics by naming “Ambassadors” for our fair city:
The Trade and Investment Ambassadors program features 12 successful ACT exporters. They are remarkable Canberrans who are well placed – and willing – to tell anyone abroad who will listen about what Canberra offers in the provision of world-class services exports.
Ambassadors are appointed for two years and were selected by industry peers. They will provide regular reports back to local exporters on their activities.
