The inaugural event of the Regulatory Policy Insitute ANZ (RPI ANZ), “Rebuilding faith in institutions, markets and competition – what is the way forward?” will be a full house this evening, with the event reaching capacity registration.
The panel discussion will feature George Houpis, Director of Frontier Economics alongside Professor George Yarrow, former chair of the Regulatory Policy Institute in Europe, Rosemary Sinclair, CEO of Energy Consumers Australia and Peter Kell, former deputy chair at regulators the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC) and the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC).
George will focus on issues and challenges that governments and consumers face in the area of digital platforms. The ACCC’s report into digital platforms was released in mid-2019, and raised certain areas that the Australian regulator was looking into. Many of these same issues are concerning other regulators around the world. George’s presentation will discuss whether existing frameworks are enough to regulate this sector, with particular insights from the European context.
Frontier Economics is jointly sponsoring this event with Herbert Smith Freehills.
