CPV Advisory Panel Reconvenes

Jun 22, 2021 | Advocacy, News, Parliament

Rod rose to speak on the reconvening of the Commercial Passenger Vehicle Advisory Panel.

Rod will be working with Steve Dimopoulos on this panel to provide more advice on how to best support the industry in recovering from the pandemic, and how to strengthen the industry for the future.

This is how we shape the future of the CPV industry.

From Hansard 22 June 21

Mr BARTON (Eastern Metropolitan) (13:06): Today I am pleased to speak on the reconvening of the commercial passenger vehicle advisory panel. I have been speaking to the Minister for Public Transport, Ben Carroll, who has recognised the significant role the panel previously played in shaping the government’s $22 million COVID support package for the commercial passenger vehicle industry. Given that the industry is still recovering from the pandemic, he has agreed to reconvene the panel. I will be working with Steve Dimopoulos on this panel to provide more advice on how we best support the industry in recovering from the pandemic and how we strengthen the industry moving forward. I will be bringing a range of issues to the government to consider, including but not limited to regulations, data collection and the multipurpose taxi program. The panel will also be advising on the Legislative Council’s parliamentary inquiry of 2017 into the commercial passenger vehicle reforms, and we will be focusing on the role the CPV sector plays in adopting zero- and low-emission vehicles. This means the panel will be advising on the allocation of funding from the recently announced $5 million commercial sector innovation fund. This advisory panel is so important. This ensures that the CPV industry’s voice is being heard by government. This is how the CPV can shape its own future.
