SYDNEY, NEW SOUTH WALES - August 02, 2016
Governor Sandoval today was the guest speaker at Australia’s largest international Chamber of Commerce, AmCham – American Chamber of Commerce in Australia. At an event attended by _ people, Governor Sandoval gave a presentation highlighting the growth of Nevada, from historic past to innovative future.
Following his talk, the Governor participated in a question and answer session with the audience before participating in a podcast for AmCham to promote Nevada as a destination to do business. “Nevada’s history is unique, and it was important to share where Nevada has been in order for the people of Australia to understand where we are going,” said Governor Brian Sandoval. “From the mining days that built Nevada, to the construction of the Hoover Dam, and the creation of the gaming economy, Nevada has a past unlike any other state. But it is the ability to write a new narrative and redefine the image of Nevada that makes us so unique and so capable of innovating once again through the new Nevada. It was important to me that the Australian people not only understand the vision we have to diversify Nevada’s economy, but also to join with us through research collaborations, industry partnerships, and, hopefully, business relocations to our state. The reception we have received from those we have met on this trip is both encouraging and exciting, and I could not be more thrilled to see what comes as a result of this trade mission for our state.”
Later in the day, Governor Sandoval was invited to unveil a plaque that will adorn the wall of the new Australian and Asian Scientific Games Headquarters in Silverwater, New South Wales. Before the ribbon-cutting, the Governor and his team met with the Gaming Technology Association Representatives to discuss gaming relationships, innovation, and regulation.
While Governor Sandoval was in his meetings, Nevada’s mining representatives participated in a discussion on sustainability issues and the impact they have on the mining industry at the University of New South Wales’ School of Mining Engineering. During this time, the higher education representatives were at the Newcastle Institute of Energy & Resources to participate in a discussion around Balanced Land Use and a roundtable on water technologies.
The evening ended at a reception hosted by Consul General Hugo Llorens at his official residence.
