Global Access Partners Pty Ltd is an independent non-profit institute that initiates strategic discussions on the most pressing social, economic and structural issues and challenges facing Australia today.

 

 
GAP was established in 2000 with a mission to increase stakeholder participation in the development of government policy. It is a member of the TCG Group of companies - a diverse and growing network founded over 40 years ago.

 

 
Through our pioneering 'Second Track' programme, we foster links between community, business and government to streamline the process of problem solving and develop novel approaches to public policy formation.

GAP runs multidisciplinary taskforces, forums, conferences, seminars, consultative committees, research and feasibility studies, online collaboration, executive consultancy, joint ventures and business missions, both internationally and in Australia.

More than 500 people participate in various GAP activities on a regular basis, and close to 100 sponsors fund various GAP projects.

Our diverse initiatives and ventures focus on practical ways to support social progress and drive economic efficiency.
