Global - Business - Technologies as Marketing Tools

Synopsis

Archived report. This report was archived in June 2004 and has not been updated. With the arrival of the Internet, telecommunication technologies have become strategic business tools that organisations can use for sales and marketing purposes, for customer service and for a range of information services. Broadband is adding the all-important video element to this. It is here that the broadband and digital TV markets are converging into the so-called New Media. Some of these developments have been in the pipeline for decades; there is therefore significant unmet demand. However, the current emphasis is in providing potential New Media customers with the right access tools. Contenders here are the telcos, cable TV operators, broadcasters and the IT and consumer electronic vendors.

"As you know, I have resigned from the Labor Ministry and have decided not to re-contest the seat of Charlton at the next election – both for personal reasons.

Before leaving Parliament, I particularly wish to record my thanks to you for your generous and constructive participation in the deliberations that generated significant economic policy reforms for the Australian community. Continuous economic transformation is a key challenge that faces all Governments.

The development of sound public policy should always be contestable. Ultimately, good and equitable outcomes are not concessions to any particular interest group, but the careful balancing of interests to create the greatest possible benefit for the nation. You have contributed to that, and I sincerely thank you for it."

Greg Combet, Former Minister for Climate Change, Industry and Innovation
