During May and June 2011, the ABS held workshops in all the Australian state and territory capitals, speaking with approximately 100 interested ABS clients, stakeholders and data users.

The workshops introduced participants to the MAP Consultation, and gained their views on the aspirations they considered important to national progress in the areas of society, economy, environment and governance. Participants were asked to form small groups and develop a short list of aspirational statements for national progress in the four domains. The themes that emerged from across the eight state and territory capital workshops are provided at Appendix B.

The feedback from these workshops formed the starting point for discussion at later consultation events. In particular, the four expert Topic Advisory Panels began their discussions with the state and territory workshop material as a reference point. Key feedback from the workshops was that governance should be elevated into a separate domain.
