G’Day USA is Australia’s premier public and economic diplomacy program in the United States. Over the past 15 years, the program has grown to include events in major cities across the United States, bringing together corporate leaders, policy makers, creative industries and academia from both countries in a year-long series of activities designed to cultivate and enhance the Australia- United States relationship.
Over fourteen years, G’Day USA has brought together industry leaders and key influencers in government, business, tourism, academia and the arts to successfully cultivate and enhance the Australia –United States relationship.
As one of the largest public diplomacy programs of any country run in the United States, G’Day USA has unparalleled reach and a record for delivering real outcomes for partners and sponsors.
The program showcases the best of Australia, from film, food and wine, education, music, fashion and technological innovation, to defence industries, and expertise in water and drought management.
G’Day USA also provides a platform to enhance bilateral dialogue at the corporate, government-to-government and academic levels, and to continue to build cooperation on priority issues for both countries.
The full program of events is designed, managed and produced by the G’Day USA Steering Committee which comprises the Australian Government (Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, Austrade and Tourism Australia) and Qantas Airways. The program is funded primarily through sponsorship and delivered through partnerships with a wide range of public and private organisations in Australia and the United States. This makes the program dynamic and responsive to the ever-growing trade, investment and people-to-people links between the US and Australia.
