What a joke, who in the USA in this economic climate will listen to a boring no hoper like Swan about investing money on the other side of the world - this is just a freebie holiday masked as work.
Swan heading to US to promote Australia's potential
Federal Treasurer Wayne Swan is travelling to New York to promote Australia to potential investors and tourists.
Mr Swan will also meet key financial figures including members of the New York Reserve Bank but he will not be meeting anyone from the incoming Obama administration.
Mr Swan says it is important to promote Australia overseas.
"It's a pretty full program, it's a short one but it's very important to be there to underscore the importance of the 'G'Day USA' program, to reinforce the fact that this is a great place to invest, a great place to do business and also a great place to visit," he said.
