Future of investment in Australia’s exports

On 27 and 28 July the Trade and Investment Growth Committee is continuing its program of public hearings in relation to its inquiry into the prudential regulation of investment in Australia’s export industries.

The Committee Chair, George Christensen MP, said that, after the Committee heard from export industries in the inquiry’s first hearing, the Committee is interested to hear from financial and investment groups about risks and opportunities associated with Australia’s export industries.

‘Australia’s export industries rely on financial institutions for investment, insurance, and to launch new projects. The Committee is looking forward to hearing how these institutions can support growth in Australia’s export industries, which contribute so much to Australia’s economy,’ Mr Christensen said.

Witnesses include the Australian Banking Association and Australia’s Big Four banks, representatives of the superannuation and insurance sectors, unions, and investor advisory groups.
