Trading on illusions – client briefing on Australia innovation strategy

Frontier’s latest client briefing discusses the Australian Government’s Industry and Innovation Strategy. The strategy was recently launched against the backdrop of a long-lived mining and resources boom, which has put pressure on other sectors of the economy, including manufacturing. The briefing suggests that the strategy’s selective protectionism may be detrimental to the economy as a whole. It observes that these elements of the strategy may reflect a broader drift in trade policy from the principles that previously propelled economic growth in Australia.

Frontier (Australia) advises on a range of public policy issues.
