'The implementation of the National Strategy for Disaster Resilience is a national priority which requires a sustained commitment by all levels of government, business and the community. I congratulate all who have been involved in the implementation of this strategy so far.

'...disasters are also affecting neighbouring countries in the region and Australia is demonstrating international leadership by hosting a workshop in Darwin later this year. All East Asian Nations are invited and we hope to create a collaborative environment where knowledge can be shared and plans made to help each other respond to disasters.'
