- International engagement continues to play a vital role in achieving Australia’s energy objectives, including by promoting trade and investment in Australian energy resources and increasing our understanding of global energy patterns, directions and technologies.
- Australia will continue to engage actively in international forums to advance our energy objectives, shape global energy frameworks, and work collaboratively to pursue common energy goals.
The importance of Australia’s international engagement is heightened by global energy diversification, shifting energy demand–supply patterns, international adoption of clean energy policies, and the need to attract foreign investment.
Our international energy interests go beyond trade to include the shaping of international energy policy; multilateral and regional cooperation; the pursuit of common energy goals, such as energy security and stable, robust and resilient markets; and the development and deployment of clean energy technology.
This chapter describes the main ways that the Australian Government engages internationally on energy issues and the policy objectives it seeks to achieve.
