|dc.description.abstract||Microeconomic reform has characterised the Australian maritime
sector over the last decade or so. Shipping reform, waterfront
reform and the current changing ownership strategies of state
governments throughout Australia have focused on enhancing
efficiency and competitiveness of Australian ports. Within this
environment ports are no longer seen as public utilities but are
expected to be market driven profit maximising operations similar to
any private sector business venture.
This paper examines a number of different strategies being
implemented by state governments and some of the real and/or
anticipated benefits that will result.
The paper argues that if government business enterprises are to
operate along private sector lines then an appropriate legislative
framework must be set in place. The paper looks in some detail
at changes in NSW ports where problems are already emerging
precisely because the ports were corporatised under an
inappropriate legislative structure.||en_AU|
