The first duty of any government is to keep Australians safe and secure.
Only the Coalition can be trusted to protect our sovereignty and our borders, our democracy and our way of life.
Our world is changing. War stalks Europe again. Coercion troubles our region once more. An arc of autocracy is challenging the rules-based order that our grandparents secured.
We’ve entered a period of escalating strategic competition regionally and globally, particularly with an increasingly assertive China.
Democratic, free people must stand together. We are working with partners across the globe who are share our interests in a stable, secure and prosperous region.
The Morrison Government has a clear and focused plan to do this, based on three principles:
The Coalition has an unmatched record of keeping Australians safe and secure and for steadfastly defending the international rules-based order.
The Coalition Government has:
By contrast, Labor cannot be trusted on national security:
Labor will abolish Temporary Protection Visas, a key component of Operation Sovereign Borders, and give permanent visas to their legacy caseload of illegal boat arrivals.
Labor will bleed the Defence and national security budgets dry to pay for their economic mismanagement.
Labor has failed to repudiate the anti-AUKUS movement run by unions, the extreme left and other Labor-affiliated entities.
Labor has taken the side of other nations against Australia’s national interest.
Labor takes an each-way bet on support for Israel.
Labor cannot be trusted to make the hard choices.
Labor is soft on crime.
Only the Coalition can keep Australia and Australians safe.
Australia’s strategic environment is deteriorating, with huge implications for our national security, our sovereignty and our prosperity.
Our region, the Indo-Pacific, is the epicentre of intensifying global strategic competition and is itself in the midst of the most consequential strategic realignment since the Second World War. We face rapid militarisation, as well as increasing malign activities such as espionage, disinformation, cyber-attacks, foreign interference and economic coercion.
Australia stands with the people of Ukraine and continues to call on Russia to stop its unprovoked, unjust and illegal invasion of Ukraine.
The Coalition reiterates its strongest support for Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity and for the people of Ukraine.
The Coalition will always stand up for a world that favours freedom against authoritarian regimes which seek to deny nations the ability to make their own decisions, free from coercion.
Working closely with partners, the Morrison Government has:
The Pacific region is central to Australia’s security and prosperity, and the Morrison Government has rightly given it unprecedented attention.
The Pacific Step-up is a key plank of our foreign and strategic policy. The Office of the Pacific was established in 2019 to coordinate a whole-of-government effort and bring a strategic focus to Australia’s partnership with our shared Pacific family.
The Coalition continues to partner with our Pacific family to help them preserve and strengthen their sovereignty, support economic growth and enhance their people’s wellbeing.
We have been expanding and deepening our partnerships through the Pacific Step-up with our increased diplomatic footprint, our targeted and effective development program and the Office of the Pacific.
The Coalition Government has made record investments in the Pacific, with $1.85 billion in development assistance in the coming year and $2.7 billion in total support for the current year, including our development, security, health and financial support, and has committed at least $700 million in climate finance through to 2025.
We have supported our Pacific family in times of need, including the economic and health shocks of the pandemic; responding to natural disasters such as tropical cyclones and Tonga’s volcanic eruption and tsunami; and responding to Solomon Islands’ call to help quell civil unrest in late 2021.
The Coalition will continue to prioritise our Pacific family to ensure the safety, security and sovereignty of the Pacific is best supported by those in the region.
Under the Pacific Step-up, the Morrison Government is delivering a record $2.7 billion in support across the Pacific this year (2021-22) (development assistance, security, health and financial support).
The Coalition Government has delivered and continues to deliver:
Australia has faced unprecedented levels of economic coercion, where nations have sought to interfere with trade and impose other costs on us because we stood up and supported a world that favours freedom and the rule of law.
The Morrison Government has a clear record of standing up to this type of bullying. In the face of economic and political pressure, we have not backed down. We are also diversifying and expanding our markets, signing trade agreements with Indonesia, India, Hong Kong, the United Kingdom, the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership Agreement (RCEP) and the Pacific Agreement on Closer Economic Relations Plus (PACER Plus), among others.
A re-elected Coalition Government will continue this strong record:
Australia and our region are now in the midst of the most consequential and challenging strategic realignment since the Second World War.
A potent, capable and agile defence force is essential to defend Australia – keeping adversaries at bay and reducing the risk to vital infrastructure.
The Coalition Government has delivered on its commitment to bring Defence funding back above 2 per cent of GDP after Labor cuts reduced it to the lowest level since 1938.
Under the Coalition, Defence spending has almost doubled. We’re undertaking the most significant rebuild of the Australian Defence Force since the Second World War, with more than $270 billion invested in defence capability over the decade to 2030.
The men and women of the Australian Defence Force continue to serve our nation while deployed on operations, missions and other activities at home, in the region and around the globe in support of Australia’s national interests.
The Morrison Government has entered into the AUKUS trilateral security partnership with the UK and USA, the most important change in our approach to regional security in generations. AUKUS complements our efforts to build a network of international partnerships to keep Australia and our region safe.
The first major initiative under AUKUS is a trilateral program to support Australia in acquiring at least eight nuclear powered submarines for the Royal Australian Navy, to be built in South Australia.
Our collaboration with AUKUS partners will also underpin a major leap in cutting-edge advanced capabilities, including cyber, artificial intelligence, quantum, undersea technologies, hypersonics, electronic warfare and defence innovation.
The Coalition is strengthening Australia’s self-reliance by growing a sovereign defence industrial base and supply chains. Our investment in the defence industry is also creating jobs across the country, and building a skilled workforce that can adapt to, and change with, our priorities.
We are working more closely than ever with our allies and strategic partners to enhance military cooperation and build a cohesive Australian force to work with others to deter and defeat aggression.
The Morrison Government signed the landmark Reciprocal Access Agreement with Japan, further elevating their defence and security cooperation in support of a secure and stable Indo-Pacific.
A re-elected Coalition Government will:
Espionage and foreign interference are a serious threat to our national security, our sovereignty and our way of life. Over the last three years, our security agencies have identified espionage and foreign interference attempts against all levels of Australian politics and in every state and territory.
Australia needs to work closely with others to protect and promote our interests. The Morrison Government has a strong plan to respond to growing strategic instability caused by autocratic countries and challenges to the rules-based order, and to help build a stable, secure and prosperous Indo-Pacific.
The Morrison Government has deepened our critical strategic relationships with the United Kingdom and the United States. Establishing the enhanced trilateral security partnership – AUKUS – will enable the partners to significantly deepen cooperation on a range of emerging security and defence capabilities. This is an historic opportunity for the three nations, with other like-minded allies and partners, to steadfastly protect our shared values and to promote security and prosperity in the Indo-Pacific region. We will uphold the highest non-proliferation standards, building on our world leading non-proliferation credentials and commitments.
The Morrison Government has reinvigorated the Quad with India, Japan and the United States, with the first leader-level meeting held in 2021. This vital strategic grouping is working to ensure a free and open Indo-Pacific, contributing to pressing challenges from vaccines to space and critical technology.
Long-standing information-sharing arrangements with our Five-Eyes partners – the USA, UK, Canada and New Zealand – are more important than ever.
The Coalition Government is deepening partnerships in the region, with the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) central to our vision of the Indo‑Pacific. A strong and resilient ASEAN is vital to our region’s success and supports Australia’s own prosperity and security. Through our new Comprehensive Strategic Partnership – ASEAN’s first – Australia and ASEAN will deepen cooperation on economic and security priorities, health, and climate change. Australia’s support to Southeast Asia since the pandemic includes over $300 million for vaccines, $500 million in landmark economic development and security measures, as well as our ongoing $1 billion development assistance program. This is Australia’s largest investment in Southeast Asia since the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami.
The Morrison Government has also elevated our bilateral relationships with India, Malaysia, the Republic of Korea, Papua New Guinea, Fiji, Thailand, Germany and Austria, reflecting the breadth and depth of our shared interests.
Under the Coalition, Australia has stood up for the international rules-based order, which has supported peace, stability and prosperity for decades but is now under threat. Our strong and experienced Coalition Government will continue to make the hard calls and show leadership on the global stage. Now is not the time for turning back.
The Coalition has acted to strengthen the protection of our critical infrastructure and systems from cyber attacks by both non-state and state actors, and other serious security threats that could impact our economy, security and sovereignty.
We have passed world-first laws to protect Australia’s critical infrastructure. The reforms ensure Australia’s most important systems like energy, transport, food and grocery, banking and health care are safeguarded against a range of threats, especially cyber-attack. Authorities will be able to help critical infrastructure operators in the event of a catastrophic cyber-attack, and apply enhanced cybersecurity protections to our most important assets.
The Coalition has been at the forefront of strengthening Australia’s cyber security defences and tackling emerging challenges to keep Australians safe.
Our $9.9 billion cyber and intelligence package known as REDSPICE (Resilience - Effects - Defence - Space - Intelligence - Cyber - Enablers) is the most significant single investment in the Australian Signals Directorate. Through REDSPICE, the Coalition will deliver forward-looking capabilities to maintain Australia's strategic advantage and capability edge over the next decade and beyond.
The REDSPICE package will expand the range and sophistication of our intelligence, offensive and defensive cyber capabilities, including tripling our offensive cyber capability and doubling our persistent cyber-hunt activities. 1,900 new highly-skilled jobs will be created as part of quadrupling its global footprint. $5 billion in opportunities will be available for Australian industry to partner with the Australian Signals Directorate to build sovereign capabilities.
Our 2020 Cyber Security Strategy laid out a comprehensive plan to boost the security of Australians online, backed by a record $1.67 billion investment. We have also passed new laws and established plans to disrupt, pursue and prosecute cybercriminals who unleash ransomware and other scams on Australians, and criminals who ply their evil trade on the dark web.
The Coalition Government has not hesitated to call out malicious cyber activity that attacks Australians and our partners, including through public attributions of Russia, China, Iran and North Korea, and non-state cyber attackers.
The threat of terrorism and violent extremism has not diminished. The Coalition Government continues to take decisive action to prevent, detect and deter terror attacks.
Our new Counter Terrorism Strategy updates our comprehensive plan to counter violent extremism, equip our law enforcement and intelligence agencies, and ensure our laws and arrangements are fit for purpose.
The Coalition Government has delivered record funding in the fight on terror, including an extra $1.3 billion for the Australian Security Intelligence Organisation and boosting the Australian Federal Police’s annual budget to more than $1.7 billion.
We’ve strengthened laws to ensure our highest risk terrorists remain behind bars and that terrorists serve their full sentences even when weak state laws provide discounts; and enabling us to cancel the citizenship of dual national terrorists.
We’ve listed terrorist organisations under our Criminal Code, making it illegal to be a member or supporter, including Hizballah and Hamas in their entirety and other extremist groups such as The Base and the Sonnenkrieg Division.
The Coalition has continued to keep our communities and children safe from crime.
The threat of transnational, serious and organised crime, including gangs, is real. It is estimated that serious and organised crime costs hardworking taxpayers up to $60 billion a year.
The Coalition Government introduced world-first powers to put high-risk mafia, triad and other gang leaders behind bars. We will continue to smash the criminal networks who import and manufacture illicit drugs, chemicals and firearms, and who launder their ill-gotten gains through law-abiding communities.
We’ve invested in the Australian Federal Police to boost their capabilities to keep communities safe from criminals and the threat of drugs and violence, including through the use of Organised Crime Strike Teams and the Criminal Asset Confiscation Taskforce.
The Coalition’s tough stance on crime has meant more detections and seizures, taking drugs, guns and other weapons off our streets. We’ve cracked down on firearms trafficking, with new laws, increased penalties and mandatory minimum sentences.
We’ve also boosted the resources of the Australian Criminal Intelligence Commission, the Australian Border Force, and AUSTRAC as part of our comprehensive plan to combat transnational, serious and organised crime.
The Coalition Government’s Safer Communities Fund continues to support community groups to undertake practical projects to boost community safety.We’ve invested more than $315 million to support over 800 local projects since 2016.
Since 2016, investments through the Safer Communities Fund have ensured local schools, councils, community groups, religious institutions and others have the funding they need for programs that reduce crime and violence, decrease anti-social behaviour, and make communities safer and more secure.This includes security infrastructure such as CCTV, security lighting, doors, fencing and alarms, and bollards.
The Coalition has always been tough on those seeking to harm children. We’ve introduced mandatory minimum sentences for child sex offenders and created the Australian Centre to Counter Child Exploitation (ACCCE), which is leading the world in fighting child exploitation. We will continue to identify, disrupt and prosecute child sex offenders no matter where they are or try to hide.
The Coalition Government has always backed our intelligence agencies to protect us from the national security threats that undermine our safety and security, as well as our sovereignty.
From our REDSPICE cyber and intelligence package for the Australian Signals Directorate to establishing a Cyber and Critical Technology Intelligence Centre within the Office of National Intelligence, the Coalition has delivered the resources needed for our intelligence agencies to keep Australians safe.
Only the Coalition can be trusted to keep Australians safe and our border secure. Our strong border policies stopped the boats, ending deaths at sea and the illegal trade of people smuggling.
By contrast, when the last Labor government dismantled our strong and effective border policies, lives were lost, chaos erupted and thousands of children were locked up in detention.
A re-elected Coalition Government will never allow a repeat of the border chaos we saw under Labor. We will:
The Coalition Government recognises the importance of securing critical technologies and resilient supply chains.
Critical technology advancements over the last few decades have fundamentally revolutionised the way we live. They underpin our national security and drive our economic prosperity by creating new jobs, securing competitive manufacturing, improving our health and vaccination outcomes, increasing agricultural productivity, modernising our infrastructure and communications, enabling our energy transition, strengthening our defence forces and preserving our democracy.
But technology also brings risk. We live in a time of uncertainty, characterised by increasing geostrategic competition. Critical technologies are enabling rapid military modernisation, economic coercion, foreign interference and cyber threats.
Access to critical technologies relies on building secure, resilient and diverse supply chains for key input materials, including processed critical minerals.
The Coalition Government is addressing these challenges through the Office of Supply Chain Resilience, the Critical Minerals Facilitation Office and the Critical Technologies Policy Coordination Office.
The Morrison Government has released the Blueprint for Critical Technologies – our plan to capitalise on critical technologies to drive a technologically-advanced, future-ready nation.
It outlines the steps we are taking to promote and protect critical technologies in our national interest. These efforts will yield security and economic dividends, ensuring the critical technologies we depend on are reliable, accessible, resilient and secure, as well as governed by rules and norms that promote openness and transparency.
The Coalition has a strong, unmatched record when it comes to keeping Australians safe.
