Global - Services - B2C (E-Retailing)

Synopsis

Archived report. This report was archived in December 2004 and has not been updated. Although B2C revenues are considerably lower than for B2B, the number of consumer buyers is larger, the value of their individual purchases is much lower. B2C shopping is growing quickly, and the proportion of people who are buying from the Internet is growing, especially with broadband users. This is increasing the profitability of the selling companies, and encouraging them to invest in improved facilities and services. This report provided background, trends and developments and an analysis by Paul.

Purchase with Confidence

"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
