With Heather Ridout, Chief Executive of the Australian Industry Group & newly appointed Board Member of the Reserve Bank of Australia, in conversation with Christian Edwards, Senior Correspondent at Xinhua Daily News

In 2011 Heather Ridout was rated #9 in the Australian Financial Review’s annual ‘Covert Power’ list, and is widely recognised as one of Australia’s most influential and highest profile business leaders. Heather has been with the AIG and its predecessor, the Metal Trades Industry Association, for over 25 years. In that time she has become one of the most respected voices of the business sector and a leading figure in Australia’s public policy debate, with particular interest in the fields of economic policy, industry innovation, and education and training.

In April, Heather leaves Ai Group and will take up position as the fourth woman ever to be appointed to the Board of the Reserve Bank of Australia. Heather’s other current appointments include Member of the Prime Minister’s Taskforce on Manufacturing and Member of the Federal Government’s Business Roundtable on Climate Change.
