Synopsis

Archived report. This report was archived in 2008 and has not been updated. The deregulation process that started in the 1990s has brought many changes, and one of the major drivers for this change has been has been privatisation. However, this has in turn created its own problems, with incumbents using all means to maintain their turf, and the hope of increased competition in the fixed market being only partially achieved. One of the means of achieving increased competition is structural separation, but the incumbents would like to hang on to their vertically-integrated models for as long as possible, and are resisting. In this report, we discuss the progress of structural separation, with a focus on the regulatory aspects.

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
