The Federal Government’s financial intelligence agency, AUSTRAC, is part of a co-ordinated national response to the Panama Papers, being undertaken by Australian Government agencies dealing with financial crime.

The private sector will be invited to contribute innovative solutions to improve the quality and value of intelligence products, in a first-of-its-kind joint project initiated by AUSTRAC and ACIC.

The top priority for the Australian government is to protect our people, our economy and our way of life from the ever-changing range of national security challenges that we face as a society.
