Listed on the local Indian and New York Stock Exchanges, Videsh Sanchar Nigam Ltd (VSNL) is controlled by the Tata Group, the second largest Indian conglomerate. VSNL is the leading Indian provider of International Long-distance (ILD) and Internet related services. In April 2002, it lost its 130-year ILD monopoly, and faces sharply declining revenues in its core business. VSNL is adopting a number of strategies to survive including obtaining end-users by acquisition, moving into NLD and expanding its national backbone, moving into broadband Internet, expanding into overseas markets, down sizing and cost cutting.

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
