The context for Australia’s foreign aid program, and indeed all our international relations, is complex and fast changing.
We have our work cut out for us, right now, close to home and globally, to hold our own in an increasingly contested international arena.
Australians are right to expect from us a foreign aid program that makes the best possible use of our taxes, and responds skilfully to a fast-paced changing world to assist our neighbours.
But what does it look like to be a good neighbor, locally, nationally and internationally. Whilst I’m not religious, I recently spoke at an event organized by the Seaforth Baptist Church and Micah Australia and it is good to remind Christians about what their faith believe in.
