Global - Mobile - Equipment


Archived report. This report was archived in October 2006 and has not been updated. The telecommunications equipment market overall has declined considerably, with some equipment suppliers severely reducing their production facilities and outsourcing to countries with lower labour rates. The mobile market has also been affected, but to a lesser extent. Figures for 2003 and 2004 show some encouraging signs, with most potential in Asia. This report discussed statistics and forecasts for the wireless equipment market, and describes some of the new developments. The mobile handset market is described elsewhere.

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
