Regulation of Australian agriculture: draft report

Policy Online carries a link (21.7.16) to a Productivity Commission report into the regulatory system surrounding Australia’s agricultural industry. Among its findings, the report is critical of National Party-introduced ‘protection’ measures, and ‘recommends slashing red tape in agriculture to make it easier for farmers to do business. It [also] argues that foreign ownership rules should be relaxed, and that the Coalition’s ‘effects test’, designed to prevent the misuse of market power, won’t work.’
