Foreign Policy White Paper

The Australian Government is developing a foreign policy White Paper – a comprehensive framework to guide our international engagement over the next five to ten years.

This will be Australia’s first foreign policy White Paper since 2003.

The international environment has changed profoundly over the past 13 years.

At the same time, Australia’s engagement with the world has continued to expand.

We need to ensure our international engagement continues to deliver prosperity and security for all Australians.

The White Paper will provide a roadmap for advancing and protecting Australia’s international interests and define how we engage with the world in the years ahead.
