Australia in Brief
Advancing the National Interest is the Government`s - and Australia`s - second foreign and trade policy White Paper. It is a comprehensive assessment of Australia`s place in the world and articulation of the Government`s strategies to protect and promote the security and prosperity of Australia and our people.
The Australian Government`s ambitious trade policy is geared towards increasing economic activity, creating jobs and getting a fair deal for Australia in the international marketplace. This all adds up to more jobs, more choice for consumers, and a higher standard of living for all Australians.
