Kris will touch on a wide range of topics that concern the business community from an update on the ultra-fast broadband network, to resilience-building efforts in preparation for natural disasters, and his work with Customs to ensure our exporters are well supported.
He’ll then focus on the commitments he has made to ensure that honest business thrives and consumers get a fair deal. Currently, Kris is considering feedback on protections against unfair business practices; consulting on competition laws within the Commerce Act; and plans to stop the practice of ticket scalping at major events.
