Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2015 Week 11 Hansard (24 September) . .

Page.. 3523..


MR BARR: Thank you, Madam Speaker. To put it simply, exporting assists our Canberra businesses to grow and to become more profitable. Exporting exposes businesses to new ideas, management practices, marketing techniques and ways of competing that they would not experience if they were constrained to their home markets. It also considerably improves their ability to compete within the domestic market.

Exporting accelerates innovation, it creates wealth and jobs, and it supports business investment in future growth areas. I wish all of our exporters all the best on this trade mission and look forward to working with them.

I ask that all further questions be placed on the notice paper.


Madam Speaker presented the following paper:

Committee Reports—Schedule of Government Responses—Eighth Assembly, as at 23 September 2015, including outstanding Government responses in Seventh Assembly.

Auditor-General's report No 4 of 2015—government response

Paper and statement by minister

MR BARR (Molonglo—Chief Minister, Treasurer, Minister for Economic Development, Minister for Urban Renewal and Minister for Tourism and Events): I present the following paper:

Auditor-General's Act, pursuant to subsection 17(6)—Auditor-General's Report No 4/2015—ACT Government support to the University of Canberra for affordable student accommodation—Government response.

I ask leave to make a statement in relation to the paper.

Leave granted.

MR BARR: I thank Assembly members for the leave. The Auditor-General's performance audit report No 4 of 2015, ACT government support to the University of Canberra for affordable student accommodation, was tabled here in the Assembly on 12 June 2015. The audit found that government administrative and decision-making processes associated with the provision of financial and other support to the University of Canberra have been implemented effectively. The government response agrees to two recommendations, agrees in principle to two recommendations and notes one recommendation made in the audit report.
