Our Credentials

In these challenging times, the need for business communities to stay connected and drive profit through intelligent networking is greater than ever. With this in mind, public policy network Global Access Partners (GAP) has created First 5000, an exclusive virtual business alliance restricted to Australia’s top 5000 medium size enterprises.

GAP is a not-for-profit organisation which initiates high-level discussions on the most pressing social, economic and structural issues and challenges across a broad range of Australian industry sectors. GAP’s diverse ventures focus on practical ways to support social progress and drive economic efficiency.

Through its pioneering ‘Second Track’ Process programme and interactive virtual think-tank, Open Forum, GAP seeks to foster links between community, government and academia to streamline the process of ‘fast-tracking’ solutions to key issues, increase stakeholder participation in policy formation and develop novel, cross-disciplinary approaches to regulatory problems by engaging key stakeholders in high-level discussions and research.

GAP partners include Federal and State governments, major corporate enterprises and industry bodies.

Every dollar invested by government in GAP projects leverages two dollars from the private sector.
