Australians enjoy one of the highest qualities of living in the developed world and this is due in no small part to our strong economy and robust but fair taxation system.
While the global economy still faces many challenges, Australia has strong governance frameworks that will help us to manage the impacts of these challenges, just as they did during the global financial crisis in 2008.
The policy and governance systems that have been introduced in Australia under successive governments have created an environment of regulatory stability, transparency and a culture based on the notion that everyone should pay their fair share.
We have developed our robust systems and policies over the past 101 years and together, working as a team with businesses and individuals, we can ensure that our world-class system of governance continues to help build a strong and resilient economy that delivers for all Australians.
The Hon David Bradbury
Minister Assisting for Deregulation
