Joint media release with the Minister for Industry, Innovation and Science, the Hon Greg Hunt MP, and the Assistant Minister for Industry, Innovation and Science, the Hon Craig Laundy MP.

The Turnbull Government has today released for consultation the findings of the Productivity Commission’s final report on its Inquiry into Australia’s Intellectual Property (IP) Arrangements.

The Productivity Commission’s consultations were extensive and included over 600 submissions and four roundtables, six public hearings and over 800 research references.

This is a report to government and we will consider its recommendations and undertake further consultation with stakeholders prior to a response in mid-2017.

Consultation is open until 14 February 2017. Details about providing further feedback on the final report are available at: https://consultation.business.gov.au/Consultation/
