Agribuzz with David Leyonhjelm
Market forces are a great equalizer when allowed to exist. But Wilmar is not proposing to allow growers to have a choice - all sugar would be put through Wilmar's trading sub-entity. Cane growers want the choice - and then, as you say, if Wilmar performs, market forces would prevail. What is wrong with this picture is that a corporate entity is trying to change the rules for how they operate in the Australian market. The question becomes: can an entity come in and dictate to the government that existing competition and trade maxims don't apply to them, or is there room for fine tuning of regs?
