Independent Higher Education Australia (IHEA) has provided final submissions to two interim reports of the Productivity Commission 'Productivity Inquiry'.
The Productivity Commission's Productivity Inquiry is reviewing Australia’s productivity performance with a view to recommending an actionable roadmap to assist governments to make productivity-enhancing reforms. This current Inquiry is being undertaken at a five-yearly interval, with first Inquiry completed in 2017.
As part of this Inquiry, the Productivity Commission released series of interim reports.
