"Australia has been an active participant in the preparations for the Conference and in the negotiations for international conventions on climate change and biological diversity," Mrs Kelly said."

"The strength of the Australian delegation, which will also include representatives of the States, non-government organisations, industry and unions, reflects the major importance the Australian government attaches to the Conference."
