The Government of Australia tends to play an essential role in supporting the development and enhancement of the Australian music and performing arts industry through a great number of initiatives that have been implemented over time. A good example of such an initiative is the sounds Australia which plays an essential role in ensuring and developing the national as well as the international contemporary music industry in Australia.
