All are welcome to attend the brief service in the churchyard. Following the tradition of the New York City firefighters’ salute to fallen comrades, the bell will be tolled in four sets of five rings. Prayers of peace will be offered. “Sadly, we again find ourselves preparing to sound the Bell of Hope to pay our respects and offer support to other cities and nations and people who have suffered great loss. As we continue to pray for peace, we will honor the memory of those who perished so tragically this week in Sydney and Peshawar,” said the Reverend Dr. James H. Cooper, rector of Trinity Wall Street. “To our fellow citizens, please know that the sanctuaries of St. Paul’s Chapel and Trinity Wall Street are open to people of all faiths—or no faith—who seek a place of solace and reflection.” The Bell of Hope was presented to New York City by The Lord Mayor of London on the first anniversary of the September 11th attacks. Made of bronze, it was created in the East End London foundry where the original Liberty Bell was cast more than two centuries ago. The bell is sounded in solidarity for victims of terrible attacks and terrorism. It has been rung following the bombings in London, Madrid, Mumbai and Moscow; for the Virginia Tech victims; for the Oslo and Utoya Island, Norway victims; for the Aurora, Colorado and Oak Creek, Wisconsin victims; the Boston Marathon victims and on 9/11 anniversaries. A bell from the tower of Trinity Church rang for the Newtown, Connecticut victims as part of a national day of mourning. Historic St. Paul’s Chapel, part of the Parish of Trinity Wall Street, is located directly across from the World Trade Center site. Spared from destruction, “the little chapel that stood” was home to an extraordinary nine-month volunteer relief effort after the 2001 terrorist attacks. About Trinity Wall Street Located at the head of Wall Street, Trinity Church has been part of New York City’s and our nation’s history since its charter in 1697.

At an event at the Australian Embassy hosted by The Honourable Kim Beazley, Australian Ambassador to the United States, the diamond donation was officially handed over to the Smithsonian Institution by Rio Tinto's chief executive, Sam Walsh. Comprising 500 carats of rough diamonds from Rio Tinto's Argyle Diamond Mine in the remote north west of Australia, Rio Tinto's donation will be used by the Smithsonian for exhibiting and research purposes. It is the first collection of Argyle diamonds at the Smithsonian Institution. Dr Jeff Post, Curator of the Smithsonian's National Gem and Mineral Collection said, "Rio Tinto's generous donation is a significant addition to our gem collection and will allow us to study in more detail, the unique properties of diamonds from one of the world's great ore bodies." Rio Tinto's Argyle Diamond Mine is the world's largest producer of natural coloured diamonds and was instrumental in developing the US market for champagne and cognac coloured diamonds in the early 1990s. The Argyle mine is also the first and only ongoing source of pink diamonds in the world. Argyle pink diamonds are among the most intriguing, complex and highly valued gems in the world and the Smithsonian is particularly focused on researching the origin of the pink colour in Argyle diamonds. Chief executive Sam Walsh said, "We are honoured to partner with such an esteemed scientific institution as the Smithsonian and we are proud to share Rio Tinto's story of our unique Argyle diamonds. This donation of Argyle diamonds represents an important piece of Australian mining history and we hope that it will be enjoyed by millions of people for many years to come."

The study, which includes interviews with more than 4,100 executives and managers with national or multinational company experience working in Asia, revealed that U.S. businesses are not only performing well within Asia but in fact outranking their international peers within high-growth regions. Specifically, U.S. businesses are overrepresented among the star performers in the research, coined as “Asia Business Champions” or the top 5 per cent of companies operating in the region based on past high performance and future promise of success. Tom Homer, Telstra Global Head of EMEA and the Americas hosted the event and explained the rationale for his company spearheading this research. “As a company that has a long track record of operating successfully throughout Asia, we wanted to quantify the business sentiments of multinationals operating in the region. Our research was also designed to ascertain the attributes and success factors for businesses that are excelling in Asia and the experiences of international executives contributing to the growth of these operations.” During the event, Mr Homer told guests that an impressive 68 per cent of U.S.-headquartered businesses in the region have met their financial and strategic objectives over the last three years.

And 54 per cent of U.S. companies find it is extremely important to communicate the needs of the local market to global headquarters compared with 43 per cent of all other businesses.” Telstra Global’s Connecting Countries report also revealed: • 50 per cent of companies see expanding into new markets as extremely important to the success of their firm in the next three years; • China is the primary growth market for companies who see expansion into new markets as a high priority in Asia over the next three years, 50 per cent nominated China as part of their strategic expansion plans; • Additionally, companies are also focused on expansion into Singapore (38 per cent), Hong Kong (33 per cent) and India (32 per cent). • ICT and financial services companies are also over-represented in the Asia Business Champions category, 15 per cent and 12 per cent respectively, compared with 7per cent of all businesses.
