Dr Cullen's diary - July 10 to 16


Sydney. Dr Cullen will address three investment audiences. He will begin at 7.30 am with a breakfast hosted by Salomon Smith Barney, will meet briefly with Citigroup Management and will go from there to a round-the-table investor discussion organised by the National Bank.

He will also address a Trans-Tasman Business Circle luncheon.

Between these speaking engagements, Dr Cullen will meet the Federal Minister for Financial Services and Regulation, Hon Joe Hockey, and the Deputy Governor of the Reserve Bank of Australia, Dr Stephen Grenvile.

A meeting between Dr Cullen and the Australian Federal Treasurer, Peter Costello, has been set down for 9 August, subject to final confirmation. Competing schedules made it impossible for the two men to meet during this visit.

Dr Cullen returns to New Zealand this evening.


Wellington. Address to Financial Planners and Insurance Advisors Association, Main Auditorium, Wellington Convention Centre. Speaking at 10.20 am for 15 minutes.
