Review of Australian Broadcasting Services in the Asia Pacific has published submissions

The Department of Communications and the Arts' Review of Australian Broadcasting in the Asia Pacific has published the 433 formal submissions it received here. I'm only just beginning to look through them but I'm heartened to see that there were so many submissions and from such a diverse range of groups.

"Submissions were received from people and organisations based across Australia and the Asia Pacific region, as well as other countries, including Germany, Indonesia, New Zealand, Palau, Papua New Guinea (PNG), Peru, Philippines, Samoa, Singapore, the United Kingdom (UK), the United States (US) and Vanuatu."

A few that caught my eye include the Prime Minister of Vanuatu. Sean DorneyGeoff Heriot. Murray Green. Peter Parker. Av-Comm / Tecsun Radios AustraliaBruce Dover and Ian Macintosh. The Australian Broadcasting Corporation. SBS. Supporters of Australian Broadcasting in the Asia Pacific (I am a member by the way). ABC Alumni. Lowy Institute. My contribution is here.

It's heartening to see such a great response on this subject. I look forward to the report which is being prepared for government by the end of 2018 and which will be made public "in due course".
