Biographies

In 1987 a major re-structuring took place in the Australian Government Departments. The Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade was established at this time, taking the place of the Department of Foreign Affairs and the Department of Trade. 'The Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) is responsible for protecting and advancing Australia's national interests by contributing to international security, national economic and trade performance and global cooperation; maintaining consular and passport services to Australian citizens; projecting a positive and accurate image of Australia internationally; and enhancing public understanding of Australia's foreign and trade policy.' from http://www.dfat.gov.au/dept/index.html (28/11/00).
