Government will act on audit and sell assets: Norton Rose

A partner at the corporate law firm expects the National Commission of Audit’s recommendations on state asset sales to be implemented.

The Commonwealth government may appoint a number of investment banks this year to study the best way to privatise four state assets identified by the National Commission of Audit as ripe for sale in the short term, says Iain Laughland, a partner at law firm Norton Rose Fulbright.

“I wouldn’t be surprised to see a privatisation program initiated soon,” Mr Laughland told Data Room in an interview.
