Appointment of Mr John Cosgrove as a Commissioner of the Industry Commission

I am pleased to announce that Mr John Cosgrove has been appointed as a full-time Commissioner of the Industry Commission for a period of five years.

Mr Cosgrove's appointment as a Commissioner follows a four year term as an Executive Director of the World Bank. His career has included a wide range of international experience, including Treasury representative to the Australian High Commission in London and a member of Australia's Pacific Economic Cooperation Committee. Mr Cosgrove has been a senior executive in the Australian Treasury since 1976.

I am confident that Mr Cosgrove will bring to the Commission a valuable range of domestic and international experience in economic, fiscal and development matters.
