Reviewing the Regulation of Rural Water Charges
Guest Speaker: Ms Cristina Cifuentes
Cristina was appointed a Commissioner of the ACCC in May 2013. Cristina has experience in both the public and private sectors across public policy, finance and utility regulation. Prior to joining the ACCC, Cristina was a Director of Hunter Water, a water utility in NSW.
As Chair of the ACCC's Communications Committee and the ACCC's Infrastructure Committee, Cristina oversees the ACCC's regulatory role in relation to key infrastructure in areas such as telecommunications, wheat ports, rail, and water. She is also a board member of the Australian Energy Regulator which has responsibility for regulating the national electricity and gas markets.
Cristina’s presentation will focus on the importance of rural water markets in the context of agribusiness and the Australian economy. Water markets in turn rely on efficient and transparent charges for water infrastructure access and use. The Government has asked the ACCC to review the rules which apply to rural water infrastructure charges and government charges in the Murray-Darling Basin. With final advice due at the end of the year, Commissioner Cristina Cifuentes outlines the ACCC's approach to reviewing the water charge rules.More >>
