Joint media release with the Hon. Alex Hawke MP
The Morrison Government is building a more secure and resilient Australia with more than $2 billion in investment to bolster national security, improve community safety and further streamline our migration system as part of our plan to secure Australia’s recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic.
The safety and security of Australians remains paramount and will become increasingly important as the Government moves to the next phase of our Economic Recovery Plan.
The 2021-22 Budget focuses on ensuring that we keep Australians, our borders and our economy safe.
From combating threats of espionage and criminal gangs, to ensuring that security and trust are built into the foundations of Australia’s digital economy, the Morrison Government is focused on combating the risk of threats posed to Australians that remain ever-present.
A secure Australia, along with a carefully managed migration program, will all support Australia’s economic recovery and ongoing prosperity as we continue to recover from the COVID-19 pandemic.
