The independence of the Trade Remedies Authority (TRA) Board will be crucial to safeguarding the impartiality and objectivity of the TRA, and to ensure it acts in the national interest. We are committed to staffing the TRA Board with an appropriate range of backgrounds and experience. It is essential that Board members are appointed on merit to ensure that the Board has the right blend of skills and expertise, rather than due to affiliations with any specific interest group.
