Synopsis

After several decades of failure, telcos are trying again to introduce ‘value-added’ services driven by the Internet. However, they are not seen as the best companies to develop these services because the management needs for a telco are very different from those of a service company. Despite the recent moves by telcos to vertically integrate into content and services, the traditional content companies will continue to dominate those areas. In this report, Paul discusses this interaction between the technical and the marketing arms of the industry, and where it should head in the future.

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
