The Government outlines its expectations of the Commission in a variety of ways including an annual letter from the Minister and Government Policy Statements.
Government Policy Statements
As part of the Commerce Act and the Telecommunications Act, the Commission must have regard to any economic policies of the Government that are communicated to us through a Government Policy Statement (GPS).
The Minister of Commerce and Consumer Affairs wrote to the Commission on 10 December 2019 setting out his expectations following the Electricity Price Review (the Review). For more about the Review, see MBIE’s website.
