An inquiry into supporting Australia’s export market is exporting the work of the federal parliament to Sydney, where it will hold a hearing on Friday.

Trade and Investment Growth Committee Chair, Mr George Christensen MP, says the Committee will hear from exporters in the advanced manufacturing, video games, sugar, wine, seafood, tourism, transport-related safety products and financial services sectors at the hearing.

‘From tourism to video games, Australia offers a staggering range of products and services to the world,’ Mr Christensen said.

‘We are looking forward to hearing from this huge range of industries and businesses about how the government can assist them to grow their export capabilities and attract investment.’
The inquiry, which focuses on attracting investment, identifying regulatory barriers and identifying best practice in the export market, was launched in August of this year. This will be the third public hearing to be held.

More information about the inquiry, including a full program for Friday’s public hearing, is available on the Committee’s webpage.
