National Action Plan to Combat Modern Slavery 2020-25
The Australian Government is committed to taking action to eradicate modern slavery, and to protect and support victims of these crimes.
This is why the Government has developed a new five year National Action Plan to Combat Modern Slavery 2020–25, which sets the strategic direction of Australia’s response to these crimes. The National Action Plan to Combat Modern Slavery 2020-25 was launched on 9 December, 2020 by the Assistant Minister for Customs, Community Safety and Multicultural Affairs, The Hon. Jason Wood MP.
The new National Action Plan builds on Australia’s efforts and initiatives under the National Action Plan to Combat Human Trafficking and Slavery 2015-19. This includes implementation of Australia’s world-leading Modern Slavery Act 2018.
