As global energy demand patterns shift, the Australian Government will continue to review the nation’s international engagement to ensure that it remains appropriate and relevant. This may include a deeper in-country engagement in new and emerging markets and with strategic energy partners and energy agencies.
The Australian Government cannot engage in every international energy forum or partnership. Our international effort will be prioritised against other government objectives to ensure value for money. Decisions to participate in specific forums will be rigorously evaluated against the likely contribution of participation to achieving the objectives outlined in Section 13.2. Decisions will also take into account the appropriate roles for government and business or other interests.
The government will review Australia’s overall energy engagement strategy to ensure relevance and effectiveness as part of regular energy policy reviews.
International energy engagement policy actions
The Australian Government will maintain close engagement with key markets, institutions and strategic partners to advance Australia’s energy objectives, and will regularly review its international energy engagement as part of the four-yearly strategic reviews of national energy policy.
