Review of National Competition Policy Arrangements
This public inquiry has concluded. The inquiry report was released by the Australian Government on 14 April 2005.
The Productivity Commission was asked by the Government to:
- report on the impact of National Competition Policy (NCP) and related reforms undertaken to date on the Australian economy and community
- identify areas offering opportunities for significant gains to the Australian economy from removing impediments to efficiency and enhancing competition.
In examining new areas, the Commission was to have regard to the Government's desire to focus new reform activity where there is clear evidence of significant potential gains, through improvements to Australia’s international competitiveness and the efficiency of domestic markets.
