Submission on National Action Plan to Combat Modern Slavery 2020-24

Chartered Accountants ANZ responds to the Australian Government’s National Action Plan.

Chartered Accountants ANZ supports the Australian Government's National Action Plan to Combat Modern Slavery 2020-24.

We provided our feedback on 14 January 2020 which included our comments supporting the proposed 12 goals of the National Action Plan.

In our submission we suggest the Government encourages similar state-based support systems (the role of the Commissioner under the NSW Act could be replicated in each state). This may be able to support proposed goal 2 'Engage the Australian community to understand and combat modern slavery' and goal 9 'Promote transparency and accountability for combating modern slavery risks in global supply chains, including in Government procurement'.
