Foreign Affairs and Trade
The Trade 2040 Taskforce (Taskforce) brings together government, industry, unions and community representatives to serve as a key consultation forum to progress the Government's trade policy agenda. The views from the Taskforce will help inform the Government's trade policy agenda with a strategic and forward-looking outlook to 2040. This includes important initiatives such as the report: Invested: Australia's Southeast Asia Economic Strategy to 2040. Members will exchange views and provide advice to Government on trade and investment policy, promotion and priorities including Australia's participation in trade negotiations and in international economic cooperation forums. The establishment of the Taskforce prioritises putting people and business at the centre of Australia's trade policy, implementation and delivery. Taskforce membership is drawn from a wide cross-section of Australian society. Individual members are leaders in their fields drawn from across Australia and reflecting a broad range of experience, including First Nations representation.
