Acting on climate change, protecting the environment

Budget repair that’s fair: a 10 year plan to strengthen the Australian economy

Australia’s place in a changing world

Australia seeks a good international society. Our national interest is in a peaceful, stable and prosperous world. There are many challenges to this global vision – including the threat of conflict between states, the rise of non-state actors, growing economic inequality, and climate change. We acknowledge our leading role in our region and accept our global responsibilities.

Putting people first in every State and Territory

Labor will govern for all Australians, in every State and Territory. That's why we've got positive plans to build infrastructure and create jobs for every State and Territory.

And more policies to come.
