Creator
Australian Library and Information Association
Description

Australian Library and Information Association (ALIA) welcomes the opportunity to respond to the Government's Foreign Policy White Paper. Libraries and other cultural institutions are well placed to contribute to foreign policy discussions in areas including:
 
- Australia’s contribution to the UN Sustainable Development Goals
- Advice about the impact of trade agreements on domestic copyright
- Involvement in research and data initiatives to support Australia’s knowledge economy
- Promotion of Australia’s creative industries, especially in the area of literature
- Cultural understanding within our region and internationally
 
We would like to highlight libraries’ role in terms of innovation, relationship building and economic outcomes – making data accessible to researchers and helping to support knowledge-based industries; our commitment to supporting Australia’s reporting against the UN Sustainable Development Goals, and our desire to see arts, culture and heritage recognised in future international agreements.
