The Motor Trades Association of Australia Limited (MTAA) today welcomed the tabling in Parliament of the final report of the Senate Economics Reference Committee Inquiry into the Australian automotive industry.
MTAA Chairman, Neville Gibb congratulated and thanked Senators and the Committee Secretariat on the year-long inquiry and final report, arguably the most comprehensive inquiry ever undertaken by Parliament into the whole of the Australian automotive industry.
‘MTAA supports all the recommendations and urges government to take full advantage of the work that has been undertaken and use the recommendations to help lay the foundations for an ongoing vibrant, successful and sustainable automotive industry' Mr Gibb said.

The Motor Trades Association of Australia Limited (MTAA) said today’s announcement by the Federal Government to allow personal imports of ‘new’ vehicles from 2018 is illogical, ill-conceived and will significantly increase risk to consumers.
MTAA CEO Richard Dudley said it is a misnomer to masquerade the decision under the auspices of increasing competition and consumer choice.
The Motor Trades Association of Australia (MTAA) and the Australian Motor Body Repairs Association (AMBRA) have launched a petition through the new AMBRA website calling for a Senate Inquiry into the role of Insurers in the Motor Body Repair Industry.
The petition has been actioned following a recent AMBRA meeting where growing nationwide concerns were raised as the industry has reached a critical point around the dominance of insurers and the impacts these companies are having on the industry.
