• 4. Establishment of a separate International Liaison Group

    Mark Konza led discussion on a suggestion by members for the establishment of a separate liaison group to deal specifically with international issues.

    • Members discussed possible models for consultation on complex international issues, including a limited life working group. Members were reminded that under the ATO’s enhanced consultation arrangements the approach is to keep to a minimum the number of formalised committees.
    • Members agreed that for the next two LBLG meeting for this year international topics would be included in the LBLG agenda under a separate section dedicated to international issues. If complex international topics which needed a working group approach for resolution were identified, then this might indicate the need to continue the existing working group.
