Australia's approach to the global compact is informed by our national experience and the coalition government's steadfast commitment to secure borders and integrity in our migration programs. Australia engaged constructively in the negotiations to develop a compact that would make migration safer, more regular and more orderly. As the government has stated, we will not sign up to anything that diminishes, undermines or limits our ability to keep Australians safe.
