The year in review
In the past year, the Australian Government's
overseas aid program has continued to play an integral role in responding
to issues fundamental to the Australian national interest. AusAID maintained
its focus on poverty reduction in our region and adapted to playing a key
role in more coherent, and significantly larger, whole-of-goernment responses
to international challenges. While these are demanding times, the agency
has responded effectively to the many and varied calls upon its resources.
