ECONOMIC CONSULTATIONS
Statement by the Prime Minister, Mr William McMahon
The Government has been giving consideration to ways
of improving the effec tieness of the periodicecorbmic consultations with
representatives of industry and commerce. After obtaining the viewgt of
participating organisations, it has been'deci-ded for the future to hold one
longer set of consultations each year instead of the present practice of
two meetings. It is intended that the annual consultations extend over
three days so that more time will be available for discussion of issues
of particular concern to organisations and to the Government. The
Government believes that the new arrangements will increase significantly
the usefulness of the consultations for all participants.
Invitations have been extended for the next consultations
which will be held from 7-9 July. On 7 and 8 July, Ministers will meet
national organisations in three groups: primary industry, manufacturing
industry, and commerce and mining. Also on 8 July, Ministers will
meet with the Manufacturing Industries Advisory Council. On 9 July,
meetings will be held with the Export Development Council and the
Australian Council of Trade Unions.
The organisations invited in the primary industry,
manufacturing industry, and commerce and mining groups are shown
