On 20 August 2015 the Senate referred the following matter to the Foreign Affairs, Defence and Trade References Committee for inquiry and report by 3 December 2015. The terms of reference for this inquiry are as follows:
  • Mexico’s continued elevation in the global geo-political and economic order and its implications for Australia;
  • opportunities for enhanced relations, including the potential for increased bilateral engagement and also through jointly held memberships such as the G20, APEC, OECD and MIKTA;   
  • potential opportunities for enhanced trade and investment ties, in particular those emanating from the proposed Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP);
  • scope for increased collaboration in the education sector and the potential for extending scholarship programs to Mexico;
  • scope for increased trade and commercial exchange in the resources sectors with particular reference to hard rock mining and the Oil & Gas sector in the Gulf of Mexico;
  • scope for cross investment and joint ventures in Australian and Mexican infrastructure projects; and
  • any other related matters.

The committee advertised the inquiry on its website. The committee also wrote to individuals and organisations likely to have an interest in the inquiry and invited them to make written submissions.
