Coalition, Labor on Pacific unity ticket

The coalition and opposition are riding on a unity ticket when it comes to demonstrating the strength of Australia’s relationships in the Pacific.

Labor foreign affairs spokeswoman Penny Wong recently returned from a trip through the Pacific alongside foreign minister Julie Bishop but decried the $11 billion cuts to aid made during the Liberal’s tenure.

“We have a unity ticket, as have successive governments and oppositions of both political persuasions, on the importance of the Pacific to Australia,” Senator Wong told the ABC on Sunday.
