Treaties tabled on 13 May 2014

The Treaties Committee is empowered by its resolution of appointment to inquire into and report on 'matters arising from treaties and related National Interest Analysis and proposed treaty actions presented or deemed to be presented to the Parliament.'

As nearly all treaty actions proposed by the Australian Government are tabled in Parliament, this type of review activity accounts for much of the Committee's work.

The Committee invites interested persons and organisations to make submissions for the Australia and United States of America to Improve International Tax Compliance and to Implement FATCA by Friday, 30 May 2014 and for the Free Trade Agreement between Australia and Korea by Friday, 13 June 2014.

Submissions for this inquiry can be lodged online via the link on this page. For information on how to make a submission, go to our Making a submission to a Parliamentary Inquiry page.
