This report gives a brief overview of the increasingly liberal regulatory systems in the telecoms sector of the Middle East. Several independent regulators have been established and competition has been introduced into most markets to a greater or lesser extent. The competitive structure of the fixed-line voice market is outlined, including the degree of privatisation of incumbents and the regulatory situation of VoIP operators. Recent infrastructure developments are also described and regional submarine cables listed.
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
