Trans-Tasman joint study

The Productivity Commissions of Australia and New Zealand have released this issues paper to assist individuals and organisations to prepare submissions to the study. It contains and outlines:

  • the scope of the study
  • the Commissions’ procedures
  • matters about which the Commissions are seeking comment and information
  • how to make a submission.

Participants should not feel that they are restricted to comment only on matters raised in the issues paper. The Commissions wish to receive information and comment on issues which participants consider relevant to the study’s terms of reference.

Initial submissions were due by 31 May 2012. Further submissions were sought on the discussion draft.
