    Foreign direct investment plays an important role in driving innovation, growth and jobs in Australia’s economy. At the same time, we need to ensure that foreign investment is consistent with our national interest and retains the support of the community. Australia operates a formal screening regime to strike a balance between being open to foreign investment while protecting Australia’s interests. Australia’s foreign investment regime continues to evolve in the face of a heightened security environment globally and an increase in the complexity of foreign investment cases. Jessica Robinson, a senior official at the Australian Treasury, will explain recent changes to the regime and how the focus of national interest concerns is evolving. She will also discuss why Australia continues to be an attractive investment destination and the steps Australia has taken to liberalise trade and investment.

    Due to limited space, ANZCCJ are offering seats to ANZCCJ Members only. Please note, registration is required by 9am 3 September 2018 and places are limited.
