AFTINET's submission includes details about the inclusion of investor rights to sue governments over domestic legislation (investor-state dispute settlement) and why claimed "safeguards" will not work, as well as other aspects of the KAFTA.

Submissions to the Senate Inquiry are still being accepted.

It is important to send a submission, because the more that are sent, the more ammunition there will be for a full critical debate about the Korea FTA when the implementing legislation goes before the Senate.
