Services to State Governments and other agencies overseas and in Australia

The department provided a wide range of services to other government agencies and non-government organisations during the year, developing or assisting in the development of programs for the international visits of more than 4 000 State and Territory Government ministers and officials, Commonwealth Government officials, academics and other members of the public.

The department’s work during the year included:

Open Source Collection

Acknowledging the importance the Government attaches to open source information about the Asia-Pacific region, the department expanded its systematic efforts to monitor regional press and electronic media during the year. The Open Source Collection Unit assumed full coverage of the range of Indonesian media in May 2000. The unit also provided detailed coverage of information relevant to Australia’s interests in the media of the South Pacific and of Papua New Guinea. Translations and summaries provided valuable and timely input to assessments of political, economic and security developments in the region by a range of clients. The unit’s work was in particular demand during regional crises and it received positive feedback from clients.
