The Abbott-Turnbull Government has already cut over $11 billion from Australia’s international development assistance budget. The 2018/19 Budget will see a further $140 million cut over the forward estimates.
A Shorten Labor government would seek to rebuild Australia’s international development assistance program beyond current levels. I am pleased to invite you and your colleagues to a forum with Senator the Hon Penny Wong, Shadow Minister for Foreign Affairs, to discuss this important topic.
The details are as follows:
Wednesday, 25 July 2018
