Professor Ian Harper, Chair, Competition Policy Review Panel

Event Overview

There has been considerable change in the Australian economy since the Hilmer Report of the early 1990s and the boost in productivity that underpinned the growth in living standards over the past two decades is waning. The Competition Policy Review will examine the broader competition framework to ensure:

  • It continues to play a role as a significant driver of productivity improvements; and
  • Current laws are operating as intended and are effective for all businesses, big and small.
