The Coalition’s Plan to Support Veterans and Their Families

The Coalition will continue to support Australia’s veterans by: implementing a veterans mental health package; streamlining the claims process for veterans and their families; implementing an annual Ministerial veterans statement; helping homeless veterans; promoting jobs for veterans and improving the veterans transition process; establishing a female veteran’s policy forum and supporting our younger veterans; supporting veterans’ concerns on Mefloquine; and commemorating service and sacrifice.

The Coalition’s Policy to Develop Indigenous Business Opportunities

We are committed to creating more opportunities for Indigenous businesses and, in turn, employment. We want to encourage Indigenous innovation, which creates a pipeline of opportunity. Indigenous businesses are 100 times more likely to hire Indigenous Australians than non-Indigenous businesses, which is why we are creating an environment where Indigenous business and innovation can grow and prosper.

The Coalition’s Policy for More Jobs and Growth through Increased Trade and Investment

The Coalition’s commitment to trade and investment is delivering local jobs. Australia’s economy will be $24 billion larger by 2035 because of the Coalition’s free trade agreements with China, Japan and South Korea. The free trade agreements with China, Japan and South Korea are forecast to create some 7,900 jobs this year and over 14,500 jobs in 2020.
