2024 Annual Bannerman Competition Lecture

10 April 2024 | Sydney

Since 2015, the Australian Competition & Consumer Commission (ACCC) and the Law Council of Australia’s Business Law Section (BLS) have jointly hosted an annual public lecture in recognition of the contribution of Mr Ron Bannerman AO, the first Chair of the Trade Practices Commission (the ACCC’s predecessor). His work established a solid foundation in Australia for modern competition, fair trading and consumer protection policies and laws.

The 2024 Bannerman Lecture held in Sydney on 10 April 2024 coincided with the 50th anniversary of the Trade Practices Act 1974 (cth) and is the 10th iteration of the lecture. The lecture, in honour of the late Ron Bannerman AO, a renowned figure in the field of competition law and regulation, was delivered by The Hon Dr Jim Chalmers, Treasurer of Australia, who focused on the Albanese Government’s agenda to build a more competitive, productive and dynamic economy.

The annual Bannerman Competition Lecture has become one of the most important events on the competition law calendar in Australia. It was pleasing to see such a strong attendance of more than 200 in person attendees at the event, with another 350 viewing live online both domestically and internationally.

A copy of the full lecture and a recording of the event are available below.
