Go8 backs revised foreign influence bill

The Group of Eight supports the proposed amendments to the foreign influence bill, which will save universities who speak-up for their international students and have international research partners being considered agents of other nations.

“The proposed amendments are a strong indication that the government has listened to our concerns and has recognised the need to support Australian universities and research,” the Go8 said yesterday, joining Universities Australia in calling for parliament to pass the amended legislation.
