KELLY ANNOUNCES STUDY TO EXAMINE EXPORT POTENTIAL OF THE AUSTRALIAN SPORTS INDUSTRY

The Minister for the Arts, Sport, the Environment and Territories, the Hon Ros Kelly MP, today announced the appointment of KPMG Peat Marwick to undertake a study of the export potential of the Australian sports industry.

Mrs Kelly said "Australia produces a wide range .of sporting goods and services of a high calibre. This study will examine the potential for exporting these goods and services primarily to the Asia-Pacific region."

"Without wishing to pre-empt the results of the study, I am convinced there is a huge potential to export our sporting goods and services, particularly in our region. This study may well be the key which opens the door to an opportunity to

contribute significantly to Australia's economic growth and assist in the Government's drive towards long-term job creation."

The study has been commissioned jointly by the Minister's Department and the Australian Sports Commission and is expected to be completed in May this year.
