"Delivering for Australian consumers: making a good Act better"
Australians are feeling the squeeze from a number of unavoidable pressures, most notably petrol and grocery prices. They are calling for action from their government. While addressing these immediate concerns is a priority, there are important steps that Australia needs to take if it wishes to put more money back into the pockets of Australian families.
ACCC chairman Graeme Samuel will outline necessary reforms to Australia's competition laws that offer to provide real, long-term benefits to the public, well in excess of those that can be achieved through short-term measures.
Mr Samuel is Chairman of the Australian Competition & Consumer Commission, (ACCC). .
Mr Samuel’s professional career commenced as a Partner of the law firm Phillips Fox & Masel from 1972 to 1980. He then became Executive
Director of Hill Samuel Australia Limited and subsequently Macquarie Bank Limited from 1981 to 1986 and co-founder of Grant Samuel & Associates
Mr Samuel has held many public offices (many of which he relinquished to assume his position with the ACCC) and is currently Chair of the ACCC
