Points for submission on the Trade and Foreign Investment (Protecting the Public Interest) Bill 2014

On March 5th, Greens Senator Peter Whish-Wilson introduced the Trade and Foreign Investment (Protecting the Public Interest) Act 2014 into the Senate. The purpose of the Bill is to protect Australian laws by banning provisions which enable foreign investors to sue governments if domestic laws “harm” their investment, known as ISDS.

The Hon. Andrew Robb AO MP
Minister for Trade
Parliament House
Canberra ACT 2600

Dear Minister,

I am concerned about the possible inclusion of investor-state dispute settlement (ISDS) in the Japan-Australia Free Trade Agreement, as occurred in the recent Korea-Australia FTA.
