Speaker Series: Holding on and Letting Go: A Treasury Secretary Reflects

Gabriel Makhlouf completes his second term as Secretary to the Treasury at the end of June.  He will offer us some reflections on his 8 years as the New Zealand Government’s chief economic and financial adviser, and on the opportunities and challenges likely to be faced by his successor.

Gabriel joined the Treasury in 2010 after a career in the UK civil service where his responsibilities ranged from policy development on domestic and international tax and welfare policy issues through to large-scale, customer-focused, operational delivery.  He served as Principal Private Secretary to the Chancellor of the Exchequer (Gordon Brown) and was also Chair of the world’s main tax rule-making body (the OECD’s Committee on Fiscal Affairs).  He starts his new role as Governor of the Central Bank of Ireland in September. 

Please note: The Chatham House rule applies to all Speaker Series events at the Club.
