​The Prime Minister has delivered the ninth annual report to Parliament on progress in Closing the Gap.

The 2017 Closing the Gap Report shows that there have been mixed levels of success in meeting the targets set by the Council of Australian Governments (COAG) in 2008, but there are some long-term gains we should all be proud of.  The 2017 report reveals important progress in key areas including tertiary education, health, reading and numeracy rates, and female employment.

The report showcases many local achievements and individual stories of success from across the country.
