The Treasurer has provided the following answer to the honourable senator's question:

Annual surveys of the economies of member countries are ;t regular and important feature of the work of the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development.

As a first stage of the 1972 survey of Australia, a small team of experts from the OECD Secretariat will visit Australia for several days in September.

The team will then return to Paris to prepare a draft report for consideration by the Economic and Development Review Committee of the Organisation.

The Committee will consider the draft report at the earliest opportunity after it becomes available, but the programme of committee meetings for the second half of 1972 has not yet been fixed.

The report will bc published as soon as possible after the Committee has finalised it.

Present indications are that the likely time of publication wil! be late December or early January 1973.
