Commonwealth National Competition Policy Annual Report 1998-1999


Monday, 7 August 2000

Content ID:



Under the Competition Principles Agreement, the Commonwealth is required to publish an annual report outlining its progress toward: achieving the review and, where appropriate, reform of all existing legislation that restricts competition by the year 2000 (as outlined in the Commonwealth Legislation Review Schedule); and implementing competitive neutrality principles (including allegations of non-compliance).

However, to fully recognise the range of Commonwealth commitments established by the NCP Agreements, all areas of Commonwealth involvement have been reported.

This report formally covers the period 1 July 1998 to 30 June 1999, although, where available, more recent information is provided in certain cases.
