International Journal of Public Policy (IJPP), Vol. 13, No. 3/4/5, 2017

Abstract: Foreign direct investment plays an important role in the Australian economy through the provision of capital additional to that which can be mobilised domestically and greater linkages to international markets and value chains. By creating a global market for Australian assets, FDI provides Australians with a stronger incentive to invest and grow their own assets. This paper suggests additional reforms that would enhance the operation of the investment regime and strengthen the investment environment. The reforms suggested seek to maintain Australia's attractiveness as an investment destination and ensure that incoming investment continues to drive productivity and income growth in the nation's interest.
