Finance Minister Bill English is spending the next few days in Australia where he'll be meeting his counterparts and speaking at a public sector conference.

Mr English will meet Australian Treasurer Scott Morrison and New South Wales Treasurer Gladys Berejiklian, as well as a range of business leaders, to assess the progress of the economy.

"These meetings are an opportunity to discuss trans-Tasman trade and the close economic ties enjoyed by our two nations," he said before he left on Friday.

"It will also be a good opportunity to gather some insights from the newly-formed Turnbull government and its economic agenda."

Mr English returns on Wednesday.
