Appendix letter to the House of Representatives - State threats

As discussed in the accompanying letter, our approach to countering state threats consists of a number of generic measures. Given the threat, the interests requiring protection and various recent incidents, the government will focus on the following elements in the period ahead:

  1.  countering foreign interference targeting diaspora communities;
  2.  protecting democratic processes and institutions;
  3.  economic security.

Some major steps have already been taken, and new issues have been identified that require an enhanced approach. This document outlines our approach to these issues, including the results of ex-ante analyses on economic security.
