CISC is responsible for:
- Industry competitiveness, productivity and labour market pressures
- Skills development and national training arrangements.
The Council focuses on major policy reforms that require Commonwealth-State collaboration.
The skills and industry parts of the Council are chaired separately to allow the respective ministers to focus exclusively on sector specific issues. The Council may engage directly with selected industry stakeholders to inform discussion and deliberation.
When required the Council will work collaboratively with other COAG councils on matters of shared interest.
Further information about COAG councils is available at www.coag.gov.au.
