The New Zealand and Australian Productivity Commissions are to study deeper integration between Australia and New Zealand.
Commissioned by Prime Ministers in January, the Commissions’ first joint study will look at potential impacts and benefits of closer integration between the two countries. The Commissions have been encouraged to produce “bold” recommendations, in the context of the upcoming 30th anniversary of CER.
The objective of the study is to analyse potential areas for further economic reform and integration to identify where significant benefits can be gained, particularly for business.
The Productivity Commissions want to draw widely on business experiences and expertise, and are seeking submissions on an issues paper that sets out the scope of the study and issues on which they are seeking comment.
Businesses are strongly encouraged to read the paper and to contribute their views on how the trans-Tasman economic relationship should develop over the coming decades.
