ACCC Chairman speaks at IIC telecoms forum

ACCC Chairman speaks at IIC telecoms forum

Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) Chairman, Rod Sims delivered a speech to the IIC Telecommunications and Media Forum in Sydney titled Regulating for competition: stepping up for platforms & stepping back from media?

In the speech he said he would explore whether digital platforms enjoyed an “unfair competitive advantage”, noting “it is important that governments examine the role digital platforms are playing in society and, as with other companies, determine if polices are needed to curb their pursuit of profit, given the problems such pursuit will cause.”

He also made some key remarks about the importance of quality journalism. You can read the full transcript of his speech here.
