Dear Minister

It is my pleasure to present to you the annual report of the Australian Trade and Investment Commission (Austrade) for the financial year 2017–18.

The report has been prepared pursuant to section 46 of the Public Governance, Performance and Accountability Act 2013 and section 92 of the Australian Trade and Investment Commission Act 1985, and reflects the matters Austrade dealt with and the legislation it administered in pursuing its purposes for the year to 30 June 2018.

I certify I am satisfied Austrade has, in accordance with section 10 of the Public Governance, Performance and Accountability Rule 2014:

  • prepared appropriate fraud risk assessments and a fraud control plan for 2017–18
  • put in place appropriate fraud prevention, detection, investigation and reporting mechanisms that meet the specific needs of Austrade
  • taken all reasonable measures to appropriately deal with fraud relating to Austrade.

In presenting this annual report, I would like to acknowledge the contribution made throughout the year by my colleagues in Austrade.

Yours sincerely
