Dinner with the 28th Prime Minister of Australia

Tony Abbott

On the evening before embarkation in Sydney, Young America's Foundation is honored to host a private dinner for cruise travelers with Australia's 28th Prime Minister, Tony Abbott . As the leader of Australia, he was responsible for expanding free trade, reducing regulations and taxes, and tackling a budget deficit. We are pleased to have the opportunity to learn from his successes.

Tony AbbottMr. Abbott will become the seventh head of state to address our audiences. Over the years, cruise travelers have heard from Lady Margaret Thatcher, Polish President Lech Walesa, Spanish President Jose Maria Aznar, Estonian Prime Minister Mart Laar, and others as they've traveled together at sea.


Tony Abbott was elected Prime Minister by the Australian people in September of 2013 and served for two years.

In his time as Prime Minister, the carbon tax and the mining tax were repealed; free trade agreements were finalized with China, Japan, and Korea; and the people smuggling trade from Indonesia to Australia was halted by securing Australia's borders.  Australia became the second largest military contributor to the US-led campaign against ISIL in Iraq.

Between 1996 and 2007, he was successively Parlimentary Secretary, Minister, Cabinet Minister, and Leader of the House of Representatives in the Howard government. His distinguished career also includes service as cabinet minister for health employment services, workplace relations, and many other positions.

Tony Abbott has been Member for Warringah in the Australian Parliament since 1994.

Prior to entering parliament, he was a jouranlist with The Australian, a senior adviser to Opposition Leader John Hewson, and director of Australians for Constitutional Monarchy.

He has degrees in economics and law from Sydney University and an MA in politics and philosophy from Oxford which he attended as a Rhodes Scholar.

He is the author of three books: The Minimal Monarchy: And Why It Still Makes Sense for Australia, How to Win the Constitutional War: And Give Both Sides What they Want, and Battlelines .

We look forward to hearing more about the Australia-U.S. alliance, current challenges to security, and his success as leader of his country.
