Trade and Investment Growth Inquiry Commences

| August 12, 2019

The Joint Standing Committee on Trade and Investment Growth has commenced an Inquiry into Supporting Australia’s Exports and Attracting Investment. Submissions are invited by Monday, 23 September 2019.

The Committee Chair, Mr George Christensen MP, said that ‘trade and investment are major drivers of economic growth and support millions of jobs in Australia. Ensuring Australia has a supportive regulatory environment will enable more businesses to take advantage of export and investment opportunities.

‘As part of its inquiry, the Committee will consider the ambition of Australian businesses to grow via export and attract investment, local regulatory barriers, and examples of best practice regulation to support export and investment growth. The Committee is particularly interested in examining new and rapidly growing areas of export,’ Mr Christensen said.

Submissions from interested individuals, businesses and organisations are invited by Monday, 23 September 2019. The preferred method of receiving submissions is by electronic format lodged online using a My Parliament account.

Further information about the Committee’s inquiry, including the full terms of reference and details on how to lodge a submission are available on the Committee’s webpage.
