Government Lobbying - Australia and selected foreign governments
Lobbying is the deliberate attempt to influence public policy and administration through various forms of advocacy. It is a well established political and commercial practice, which, as the scope and reach of the federal government have expanded, so has the number of professional lobbyists and the sophistication with which they ply their trade.
Lobbying is a service business. A lobbyists task is to provide accurate information necessary to effectively promote or argue a standpoint with people who make decisions on behalf of a client or clients.
