Andrew Hastie – Honoured to Serve

Australia faces many economic and strategic challenges in the decade ahead. I am confident Australia can meet these challenges, as we have before in our nation’s history.

It is an immense privilege to be invited to serve the Australian people in the role of Assistant Minister for Defence. I am honoured by the Prime Minister’s confidence in me. I look forward to working closely with the Minister for Defence and the leadership of the Australian Defence Force.

The Australian Defence Force is a vital institution in our life together as Australians. Its primary role is to defend our country and our values.

My mission is that of every uniformed man and woman: to keep Australia safe.

Finally, thank you for your continued encouragement and support this year. I am humbled by the trust placed in me by so many proud Australians. 

This will be my last e-news for the year. So from my family to yours, I wish you all a safe and Merry Christmas. God Bless, 
Andrew Hastie MP
