Launch of the Light Rail Business Link Program

Organiser: Canberra Business Chamber

Canberra Business Chamber, in partnership with Capital Metro Agency are pleased to launch the ‘Light Rail Business Link Program’. The Light Rail Business Link Program will build links between Government, local business, and the Light Rail consortium Canberra Metro. The Chamber will be encouraging all businesses to be “project ready”, to take advantage of this significant infrastructure investment by building the skills and training to participate.

The first of a series of quarterly forums to launch the project, two key note speakers will present current information about the competitive environment and contracting laws relevant to your business.

Dr Michael Schaper, Deputy Chair of the ACCC will inform delegates wanting to participate in the Light Rail Project about the competition laws relating to cartels, joint ventures, and price fixing; and update you on the forthcoming new business-to-business unfair contracts law.

Mark Brennan, Australian Small Business Commissioner will highlight the findings of the report titled “The Costs of Poor Contracting Practices” relating to the ASIO building project and what can be learned from that experience. Mark will also share his thoughts on dispute resolution and what small businesses should expect from government in shaping and supporting major projects.

This is a must attend event for all Canberra business seeking to benefit from the Light Rail project.
