Visiting the Library

Mr Tulk, the Library’s handsome onsite cafe, provides visitors with a casual dining experience in a beautifully renovated space within the 19th-century wing of the Library. You can reach it from La Trobe Street, near the corner of Swanston Street, and from the Library’s front foyer, through the Cloakroom.

The State Library of Victoria is on the corner of Swanston and La Trobe Streets at the northern edge of Melbourne’s central business district. A magnificent example of 19thcentury civic architecture, the Library building and main entrance is set well back from Swanston Street amidst landscaped gardens and lawns. Once enclosed by a picket and later a wrought-iron fence, today this park-like area at the front of the Library is a favourite place for people to sit and chat, eat lunch or quietly read a book. For many years, the fore court has also been also a central meeting point for a range of impromptu and planned political demonstrations.

The cafe mixes it’s heritage location with modern furnishings and tall arched windows to create an inviting light-filled space. Classic dark-timber tables, cafe chairs and banquettes fill the west side of the cafe. A long communal table, reminiscent of an old-fashioned reading room desk, and colourful wooden stools sit in the centre. On the other side of the space are more tables, the coffee machine, ordering area, cake and cold food display, and a long standing-room counter for those in a hurry. Around 80 people can be served inside, while the outside terrace caters for another 50 or so people. The cafe is named for Mr Augustus henry Tulk, the Library’s first Chief Librarian. he was appointed in 1856, and worked with redmond Barry to build the foundations of the Library’s collections. he led the Library for 17 distinguished years.

In this very tough environment, GE earned $18 billion, our third highest year in history. Thanks to the extensive repositioning of our portfolio over the past eight years, we redeployed our capital to enable growth. Our operating cash flow for the year remained strong at over $19 billion. We have a $172 billion backlog in infrastructure products and services. We have geographic diversity, with 53% of our revenues outside the U.S. We al so have a great pipeline of new products. The credit for this performance in the toughest times I’ve ever seen goes to the people of GE. The efforts of more than 300,000 skilled GE workers, technicians, credit analysts, technologists, engineers, service providers, our experienced management team, and all employees helped us end 2009 with solid profitability and prepare our Company for future growth.

Technology Infrastructure

GE Capital finance

When China’s first domestically developed regional jet took flight in 2009, two GE CF34-10A engines provided the propulsion. The ARJ21 regional jet is the result of close collaboration between our Technology Infrastructure’s Aviation business, other leading aerospace companies, and the state-owned Commercial Aircraft Corporation of China, LTD (COMAC). It represents a $6 billion opportunity for GE Aviation. More importantly, from R&D at our Global Research Center in Shanghai to GE Commercial Aviation Services’ purchase of five with the option for 20 additional ARJ21 aircraft, this endeavor demonstrates GE’s ability to truly partner with a country for mutually beneficial growth.

As GE Capital Finance moves toward a smaller and more focused structure, strategic partnerships and joint ventures will play a greater role in helping GE capitalize on market-specific opportunities. GE’s multifaceted partnership with Mubadala Development Company in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, is a powerful example of how this new approach will strengthen our position.

As China’s second- and third-tier cities undergo rapid expansion in the years to come, our businesses will be positioned to help fill insatiable demand for power generation, healthcare, transportation, and financing in a way no other company can.

Building on a strong existing relationship, GE and Mubadala will create a jointly owned global financial services business combining Mubadala’s expertise in regional investment opportunities with GE’s global origination excellence. GE Capital Finance and Mubadala will each commit $4 billion in equity to the venture with targeted assets in excess of $40 billion. The partnership also provides new higher-return investment opportunities in infrastructure investment, clean energy and water R&D, aviation, energy support, and our first ever corporate learning program in the Middle East and Africa.

Energy Infrastructure

looking forward

Some of GE Energy Infrastructure’s biggest global growth drivers are built right here at home.. GE’s Greenville, South Carolina site is the largest gas turbine manufacturing plant in the world, producing products for domestic and global export. Built in 1968, the site originally housed 250 employees and focused on building the Frame 7 gas turbine.

In the midst of this recession, we look to our extremely capable and well-trained managers to keep GE safe and focused on long-term shareowner value creation. The Board holds our leaders to an extremely high standard — we expect them to manage their businesses with a sense of ownership that is informed both by their deep operational expertise and a broad understanding of how industry dynamics and global economic conditions will affect their businesses now and into the future.

Today, the site manufactures a diverse range of energy and infrastructure products, and has grown into an integrated campus spanning 413 acres with over 3,000 employees, two engineering centers, a Gas Turbine Center of Excellence, and a Repair Development Center. GE Energy’s innovative solutions, such as fuel flexibility for turbines, have been critical in winning major deals, including the $3 billion agreement signed between GE Energy and the government of Iraq, the largest single win in the history of GE Energy.

These may be unprecedented times, but we are confident that GE has a capable, well-trained group of leaders that will secure the long-term health, growth, and profitability of the company. In the challenging times ahead, growing and retaining strong leaders and rewarding them appropriately for disciplined and thoughtful management will remain strategic imperatives for GE. Sincerely,

Ralph S. Larsen Chairman, Management Development and Compensation Committee July 1, 2010
