Our speaker next Monday 21 September is Caralise Trayes, who will talk to us about the End of Life Choice Act.  Caralise is a journalist and is the author of The Final Choice and has spoken to a number of Rotary Clubs on this topic.  Scott Burridge, President of Newmarket Rotary, said that he highly commended this talk which does not push either side of the debate, but rather gives a balanced non-emotional view.  We will soon have to make up our own minds on this important subject for the referendum next month.  Please invite friends to join us at 12.30.  No cost and no obligation!  Join us by clicking on this link:

Indonesia is a young and thriving Democracy, the world’s fourth most populous country, and with its US$1.1 Trillion economy, sits only 2 places behind Australia in the G20.  With its large and steadily growing domestic market, Indonesia has navigated some of the world’s financial turmoils better than many and has seen GDP growth consistently above 5% over recent years.  Indonesia sits proudly at the hub of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) representing around 50% of the economy of the combined member countries. Recently Australia and Indonesia entered into the Indonesia-Australia Comprehensive Economic Partnership Agreement (IA-CEPA), which offers great opportunity for a significant uplift in two-way Trade and Investment, but also opens up a myriad of other opportunity for businesses in both countries.
The Rotary Club of Newmarket invites you to hear Sir Don McKinnon on Tuesday 29 September from 6.30pm at the Remuera Golf Club.  The title of Sir Don’s speech is “How can NZ achieve good diplomatic and trading relationships with China while staying onside with its traditional Western allies?”  Sir Don served as the Commonwealth Secretary-General and is a former Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs.  During his tenure as New Zealand’s longest serving Foreign Minister, Sir Don was the inspiration behind what now has become The Asia Society from the Asia 2000 Group, and the Centre for Strategic Studies.  Sir Don is now the chair of the NZ China Council.  Tickets are $40.00pp, which includes a buffet dinner and payment can be made to the Rotary Newmarket’s bank account 12-3252-0025507-00, including your surname as reference.  Also please register your attendance with the President of the Rotary Club of Newmarket Scott Burridge burridgescott@gmail.com
