AAA's submission to the Review of the Automotive Industry argues that assistance to the Australian motor vehicle industry increases the price of new and, indirectly, used cars and as such disadvantages Australian motorists. This assistance works against the objectives of the AAA, which include promoting responsible, affordable and safe motoring and safeguarding and protecting the interests of Australian motorists.
This submission is in response to the issues raised in two papers recently published by the Garnaut Climate Change Review: "Issues Paper – Forum 5, Transport, Planning and Built Environment" and "Emissions Trading Scheme Discussion Paper."
