Minister for the Illawarra Greg Pearce today (23 November) hosted a visit of NSW Consular Corps representatives to the Illawarra region – including fact finding missions to the main UOW campus and Innovation Campus.

The purpose of the overall visit to the region was to showcase the opportunities and industry capabilities of the Illawarra to senior NSW-based Consulate representatives. The NSW Consular Corps representatives travelled from Sydney to the Illawarra for the visit.

There were representatives from the following 19 countries in attendance:

The visit was organised by the NSW Government in conjunction with Wollongong City Council, the University of Wollongong and Port Kembla Port Corporation.

The visitors were given a briefing session and a tour of the Innovation Campus before heading to the SMART Infrastructure Facility and the Illawarra Health and Medical Research Institute on the main campus. UOW Vice-Chancellor Professor Paul Wellings was on hand to meet the representatives at the iC.

Opportunities and industry capabilities specific to the Wollongong, Shellharbour, Kiama, Shoalhaven and Wingecarribee regions were presented over lunch. The lunch was hosted by Wollongong City Council with a range of regional stakeholders also invited to network and connect with the NSW Consular Corps.
