Description

John Winston Howard, Australia’s 25th Prime Minister, held office from March 1996 to November 2007, making him the nation’s second-longest serving Prime Minister. Treasurer to an earlier government and a Member of Parliament for more than three decades, Mr Howard is described as having ‘left a deep and lasting impact on modern politics, government and the country’. Mr Howard led a government that delivered major economic reform in the areas of taxation, workplace relations, privatisation and welfare. Under his leadership, Australia supported the United States and other nations in the fight against terrorism, and strengthened economic ties with neighbouring Asian nations. He is currently enjoying a very active post political career.
