Tariff Review: Release of Consultants’ Report
Post-2005 Tariff Review: Release of Consultants’ Report
Commerce Minister Lianne Dalziel and the Minister for Economic Development Jim Anderton today released an economic consultants’ report on the impact of tariff reductions commissioned to inform the Tariff Review.
The report, by Infometrics, was commissioned by the Ministry of Economic Development to provide independent input into the Post-2005 Tariff Review to assist officials in developing recommendations.
Ministers said the release would give all stakeholders equal access to the same information.
“The Tariff Review has been an open and consultative process – hence our decision to release this document.
“The Infometrics Report is an important part of the information base for the Review and will be one of a number of sources drawn on in the officials’ report. I must stress, however, that the report does not represent Government policy on tariffs,” Lianne Dalziel said.
Ministers said anyone wanting to make further submissions to the Tariff Review in light of the release of the Infometrics report, should do so by 10 April 2003.
Submissions on the report can be made in
writing to the Ministry of Economic Development or by
