Green Paper on Developing Northern Australia released for comment

On 10 June 2014, the Australian Government released the Green Paper on Developing Northern Australia for public consultation in a bid to open northern Australia to development and achieve its full potential. The Green Paper sets out six policy directions to realise the vision for Northern Australia which includes to:

 Develop a food bowl, including premium produce, which could help to double Australia’s agricultural output;
 Build an energy export industry worth $150 billion to the economy, with a major focus on clean and efficient energy, providing major increases to resource exports; and
 Grow the tourist economy in northern Australia to 2 million international tourists a year.

Public submissions on the Green Paper can be lodged online until 8 August 2014.

Op-Ed by Australian Foreign Minister Julie Bishop: Australia’s prospering partnership with ASEAN

 On a recent visit to South East Asia, I was reminded of the strength of Australia’s partnership with the countries of ASEAN – the Association of Southeast Asian Nations.

In Malaysia I met some of the 300,000 alumni of Australian universities, many now serving in key government and business positions.

In the Philippines I saw first-hand our joint relief effort in the wake of Typhoon Haiyan and was joined by hundreds of school children to celebrate a new $150 million Australian initiative for basic education needs.

In Vietnam, I was reminded further of our cooperation with projects such as the Australian-Asian Development Bank co-funded Cao Lanh Bridge that will connect communities in an economy of nearly 90 million people.
