    (Productivity Commission)

Abstract

In a presentation in November 2002 to the Annual Conference of the National Association for Gambling Studies in Melbourne, Productivity Commission Chairman Gary Banks provided an update on key developments in Australia’s gambling industries, three years after publication of the Commission’s 1999 inquiry report. While progress has been made in addressing problem gambling, it remains unclear whether problem gambling and its impacts have moderated. There is a need for more research on the effectiveness of consumer protection measures. Further reforms are also needed to ensure the independence of regulators and better regulatory enforcement.
