The new US ambassador to Australia, Arthur ­Culvahouse, says there would be no question of the US not coming to Australia’s aid if the latter was being threatened by a foreign power. Culvahouse says Australia has a lot of standing in the Pacific region, while he says he is confident that Prime Minister Scott Morrison will continue to "call out" bad behaviour by China when he sees it. Culvahouse says that while many Australians know that China is its biggest trading partner, not so many realise that the US is by a long way Australia’s biggest and most important economic partner.

US Vice-President Mike Pence says many other world economies benefit from a strong US economy, including Australia. With President Donald Trump understood to be announcing major tax reform plans on 26 April 2017, American Chamber of Commerce CEO Niels Marquardt says any cut to company taxes will benefit Australian companies that have a significant presence in the US. Pence, who is visiting Australia, notes that the economic relationship between the US and Australia is worth $A1.5 trillion.
