NSW Fair Trading implemented an Aboriginal Action Plan in 1998 and has regularly reviewed the Plan since. In November 2013 a new Aboriginal Action Plan was developed after receiving feedback from staff and consultation with Indigenous communities and organisations.
The Aboriginal Action Plan involves making Fair Trading’s services more accessible to Indigenous communities across New South Wales. By making its services more accessible, Fair Trading can improve the experience of Indigenous consumers in the marketplace.
The current Aboriginal Action Plan also aligns with the priorities set out in the National Indigenous Consumer Strategy 2014-2016 Action Plan, Taking action, gaining trust. (PDF size: 528kb)
