Treasury on Thur 30.1.2014, launched the Financial System Inquiry website. The Inquiry is charged with examining how the financial system could be positioned to best meet Australia’s evolving needs and support Australia’s economic growth. The Treasurer had in December 2013 announced the final terms of reference of the Inquiry (see last month’s edition). Interested stakeholders can now lodge their initial submissions on issues to be examined by the Inquiry via the website. Note that submissions are due by 31 March 2014. Treasury also noted that submissions on all of the terms of reference are welcome but respondents should not feel they must address each of the Inquiry’s terms of reference in making a submission.
