Submission | Inquiry into impediments to business investment | May 25, 2018
Australian Chamber members have consistently expressed concern that policy makers often do not implement policies that are in the long-term interests of our country. This heavily weighs on confidence, and therefore investment. Economic studies consistently show policy uncertainty negatively impacts business investment. If businesses are unsure what the future policy landscape looks like, their return projections will be uncertain too. This, in turn, will lower the investment a business makes. This is why policy leadership is so important in encouraging businesses to invest.
