Australian AG Mark Dreyfus will visit the United States this week for high-level meetings in Washington, DC, with US politicians, including the US AG and deputy chief of staff to President Joe Biden.

In a press statement yesterday (30 January), Mr Dreyfus confirmed he would be visiting Washington this week for three days and returning on Saturday, 3 February.


The AG will meet with US Attorney-General Merrick B Garland, deputy chief of staff to the US President, Bruce Reed, chair of the House Investigative Committee representative Mike Turner, and director of the US Copyright Office Shira Perlmutter.

He will also visit the Center for Missing and Exploited Children in Virginia and participate in “various discussions with leading US experts on artificial intelligence”.

“Australia and the United States have a deep and unwavering partnership. Together, our national security and law enforcement agencies work tirelessly to keep our communities safe from terrorism, tackle serious and organised crime and to protect our most vulnerable from exploitation,” Mr Dreyfus said in a statement to the press.

“I am committed to deepening the cooperation between our two countries on key national security and criminal justice priorities, including the rapid advancement of artificial intelligence and the challenge of end-to-end encryption.”

In the AG’s absence, Senator Katy Gallagher will be acting Attorney-General and cabinet secretary.
