The Menzies Research Centre publishes the R G Menzies Essays – a series of timely contributions to policy discussion by leading Australian and international thinkers.
Australia’s prosperity is built upon free, open markets and creative trade policy. At a time of mounting protectionist sentiment, our North Asian trade agreements open the door to increased service exports to the region's rapidly growing middle class. But does Australia have what it takes to capitalise on these deals? Fit For Service examines what Australia must do to succeed in exporting the know-how that is disrupting the 21st century.
