The Australia Network is an Australian Government funded overseas television broadcasting service established to pursue foreign and trade policy objectives, including:
• promoting Australia’s engagement across the Asia‐Pacific and Indian subcontinent;
• fostering an understanding of Australia as a dynamic, culturally diverse nation; and
• raising awareness of Australia’s economic and trade capabilities.
