Federal Member for Forrest Nola Marino has welcomed the inquiry which gives small and medium businesses the opportunity to let the Federal Government know whether the current Competition Policy is fair to them.
Mrs Marino encouraged all consumers, those affected small or large businesses and representative bodies to provide examples and insights to the review panel.
“This is the first time in 20 years an analysis of this kind has taken place and we are now operating in a significantly different economy,”
The review will also examine whether the current laws, policies and the structure of regulators are operating effectively and are fit for purpose.
Submissions are due by June 10, 2014. A copy of the Issues Paper and additional information on the review and submissions process can be found at www.competitionpolicyreview.gov.au
