At the ASEAN-Australia Special Summit on 18 March 2018, Australia announced a ten year, $80 million commitment to continue our long-running collaboration with ASEAN to combat human trafficking in our region.
Combatting human trafficking is a priority for Australia and ASEAN. This transnational crime crosses borders and requires a regional response.
ASEAN-Australia Counter-Trafficking will build on our 15 year history of supporting improved criminal justice sector responses to this crime in ASEAN, including through the Australia-Asia Program to Combat Trafficking In Persons (AAPTIP).
