Negotiation of an Australia-New Zealand CER investment protocol

Date:

Wednesday, 10 May 2006

Content ID:

1105

Abstract:

Treasury is inviting interested parties to make written submissions on the negotiation of an investment protocol between Australia and New Zealand. These submissions will assist the Australian Government in developing its strategy for future negotiations with New Zealand on investment issues.

In February 2006, Australian Treasurer Peter Costello and New Zealand Finance Minister Dr Michael Cullen agreed to commence negotiations on an investment protocol to form part of the Australia‑New Zealand Closer Economic Relations Agreement (ANZCERTA) (Media Transcript 06/013).

The incorporation of an investment protocol into the ANZCERTA will aim to strengthen the trade and investment relationship between Australia and New Zealand through the reduction of barriers to trans‑Tasman investment.

The protocol will seek to improve the investment climate for Australian investors through improved market access and improved investor protection provisions.

In addition to seeking written submissions, the Government will also be conducting public consultations in Sydney and Melbourne in early June.
