Australian Chamber supports Frydenberg’s common-sense approach to energy

11 Apr 2018 |

Calls today by Federal Energy Minister Josh Frydenberg for practical outcomes to be put ahead of ideologies in addressing national energy issues are strongly supported by the Australian Chamber of Commerce and Industry.

“Minister Frydenberg’s comments in his National Press Club address reflect the overwhelming desire of business for a common-sense approach to policy on energy production and supply,” Australian Chamber CEO, James Pearson, said.

“Business needs confidence to invest, and business needs the cost of power to come down while ensuring the reliability of the grid and that Australia meets our emissions commitments.

“Policy must encourage a market-based solution that minimises the drain on the taxpayer through subsidies and the like.

“We look forward to bi-partisan support; and for the federal, state and territory governments to put aside ideology; in the interests of keeping business viable and jobs in Australia”
