Public hearing on trade negotiations

THE Joint Standing Committee on Trade and Investment Growth is holding a virtual public hearing tomorrow on the Australian Government’s approach to negotiating trade and investment agreements.

The committee is considering how the Australian Government develops a negotiating mandate and framework that reflects whole of government priorities, as well as priorities for State and Territory Governments, businesses and workers, including processes for consultation.

The committee will also consider how to ensure agreements advance Australia’s national and cultural interests, and that First Nations Australians can participate and benefit in trade.

Further information about the inquiry, including published submissions, public hearing transcripts and an interim report are available on the inquiry webpage.
