Indigenous: National


Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet (2017)

Closing the Gap Prime Minister's report 2017.

Canberra: Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet

This publication is the ninth Closing the Gap report produced since targets were set by the Council of Australian Governments (COAG) in 2008. Over the long-term there are improvements across a number of the targets, however these improvements are not enough to meet the majority of the outcomes set by COAG. While many successes are being achieved locally, at a national level, only one of the seven closing the gap targets is on track to be achieved this year. The report highlights that it is a shared responsibility of all governments to partner with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in order to meet the Closing the Gap targets. The report covers:

  • appreciating our national culture
  • infancy and early childhood
  • education
  • employment
  • economic development
  • healthy lives
  • safe and strong communities.
