Boosting Productivity in the Services Sector - Report
Boosting Productivity in the Services Sector - 2nd interim report released
The Productivity Commission has just released the 2nd interim report for its inquiry into Boosting Productivity in the Services Sector.
This report examines two topics important to raising services-sector productivity: increasing successful application of information and communications technology by service firms, and stimulating competition in service markets. Draft recommendations include ways to encourage consumers to put more competitive pressure on service suppliers, improve competition law, raise the level of ICT skills in the workforce and increase the uptake of cloud computing.
We appreciate the high quality feedback and submissions that we have received already in this inquiry. We are seeking submissions on the questions, findings and recommendations over the next month. Submissions may be made:
Submissions close on 7 March and the Commission will deliver the final report to Government by the end of April.
