Competitive neutrality policy

Allows businesses to raise matters in relation to the competitive neutrality of government owned enterprises.

The essence of competitive neutrality is that Government businesses should not enjoy a net competitive advantage simply as a result of their public sector ownership. However, this should not be at the expense of social welfare and equity, economic and regional development considerations, or the interests of consumers.

These obligations are outlined in the Western Australian Government‘s Policy Statement on Competitive Neutrality.
