Policies for Limited Child-targeted Advertising for fast food for Australia

Australia is a culturally diverse land that has one of the most influential economies in the world. It is the sixth largest country by size with a population of more than 24 million citizens. Australia is strategically located between the Pacific and the Indian Oceans. That explains why most of the people live along the coastline while very few people live in the central region.
