Welcome to the Australian Consulate-General
The Consulate-General actively promotes Australia's interests in influential business, media, political, educational and cultural circles. It liaises closely with New York financial sector representatives to promote the resilience and strength of Australia's financial services sector, including the advantages of Australia's close proximity to the fast growing Asian markets. The Consulate-General also works to deepen two-way investment and commercial links, including through the Australia-United States Free Trade Agreement.
An important role of the Consulate-General is to influence perceptions of Australia and raise awareness of Asia Pacific issues, through its extensive contacts with New York-based media and think tanks, as well as educational and cultural institutions. It also provides consular and passport services to Australians who live in and visit New York and surrounding areas.
