Submission No. 76

Australia is active in regional institutions, such as the ASEAN, APEC and ADB. From the perspective of an educational institution, our view is that we should develop deeper bilateral relationships on a people-to-people basis. Such relationships should ideally be facilitated by the government, but not run through the government.
From the perspective of a university (and a law faculty within that university), we believe that creating new and enhanced opportunities for staff and student exchange and joint research programs (particularly in the fields of international trade, investment, dispute resolution and corporate law) would go a long way in promoting closer cooperation between Australia and the leading economies of the Asia-Pacific Rim.
