Minister Dutton attends the Five Country Ministerial Meeting in London 29-30 July.
Minister Dutton and the Commander of OSB have launched the Zero Chance communications and advertising campaign in Sri Lanka. This campaign will be rolled out across 11 countries in the region.
The Government chose to launch the campaign in Sri Lanka in recognition of Sri Lanka’s ongoing partnership in the fight against people smugglers.
Today the government announced almost $6 million in funding to develop mental health and support services, including the launch of Fortem Australia, which will be a specialised, community-based organisation focussed on the health and wellbeing of frontline workers who deal with confronting situations in their daily work-life.
On behalf of the Australian Government, thank you for being here today. This reschedules the previous meeting due to take place on the 6th of August of this year which could not proceed due to the Lombok earthquake.
Drones prowling Australia's far flung ocean boundaries, undersea sensors monitoring shipping movements around our coastlines – this could be the future of maritime surveillance to secure Australia's vast ocean borders against future threats.
