Foreign Investment and Innovation

Shandre Mugan Thangavelu, Christopher Findlay

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


    Given that services trade issues relating to commercial establishment are explicitly covered in the European Union (EU) negotiating mandate with Australia, this chapter provides an overview of two-way Australia-EU investment flows and policy irritants. This includes an analysis of Australia’s Foreign Investment Review Board investment-screening threshold, which is higher for the EU than for countries that already have preferential trade agreements with Australia. The chapter also discusses the link between investment, economic growth and future innovation
