Africa - Paging and Trunk Mobile Radio Services (research discontinued)


Once a popular and effective mobile communication service in the 1980s-90s, paging has since fallen by the wayside as mobile phones and associated services have risen to prominence. Although paging and Trunk Mobile Radio (TMR) services still exist in Africa, information and statistics are notoriously difficult to obtain for the service. For this reason, our research has been discontinued.

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
