"overseas trade employee" means a person who:
(a) is employed in the Department of Premier and Cabinet (the
"Department" ) to work in the area of international trade and investment, and
(b) ordinarily resides and works in a country other than Australia while so employed.
(2) The employment under the Act of an overseas trade employee is subject to such arrangements as may be determined by the Secretary of the Department in respect of the employee.
(3) Any arrangements determined by the Secretary under this clause in respect of an overseas trade employee:
(a) may be specified in the employee's contract of employment, and
(b) prevail to the extent of any inconsistency with any other provision of this Regulation or the government sector employment rules.
