China - Travelogue - September 2005


After first getting to know China last year, for this year’s visit, in September 2005, I organised four strategic workshops and one Roundtable with customers. I also attended an interesting analysts’ conference in Shanghai, organised by Ericsson. My analyses and assessment of the Chinese market were well-received and, of course, during these events I also obtained a wealth of inside information on the Chinese telecoms market.

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
