Brian Gleeson

Brian Gleeson is Australia’s Coordinator General for Remote Indigenous Services.

In this role, he works to improve the delivery of services and programs in 29 remote Aboriginal communities. This includes two communities on the APY Lands (Amata and Mimili).

Twice a year, Brian prepares a written report for the Federal Minister for Indigenous Affairs (Hon Jenny Macklin MP).

In this interview, we talk with Brian about some of the issues highlighted in his most recent report including:

  • the critical importance of good governance,
  • government expenditure statements,
  • poor telecommunication services in remote locations, and
  • legislative support for Aboriginal home-ownership option, including on the APY Lands.

The Paper Tracker has been monitoring the role, work and recommendations of the Coordinator General since June 2009. Brian first came on the Paper Tracker Radio Show back in November 2011.
