Beware dead wood in retail’s root-and-branch review

Bruce Billson's competition law review needs to address the structural changes occurring in retail, as well as the role technology plays in reshaping the competitive environment.

Given that they were speaking at a Food and Grocery Council forum, it isn’t surprising that Australian Competition and Consumer chairman Rod Sims and Small Business Minister Bruce Billson focused on the more contentious issues flowing from the dominance of the two major supermarket chains. It would be a massive missed opportunity, however, if those issues were a major focus of the proposed ‘’root and branch’’ review of competition law.
