About this Committee

The Joint Select Committee on Trade and Investment Growth was established to inquire into and report on any measures to further boost Australia's trade and investment performance, including, but not limited to, barriers to trade; reduction of red tape and structural challenges and opportunities for the Australian community.

As part of its remit, the Committee will investigate how the research and innovation sector can better assist in overcoming Australia’s geographic, economic and labour challenges, with a focus on commercialisation including, how technology imports and exports could be further facilitated.
