THE ROLE OF THE STATE IN A DEREGULATED TRANSPORT MARKET. REPORT OF THE EIGHTY-THIRD ROUND TABLE ON TRANSPORT ECONOMICS, PARIS, 7-8 DECEMBER 1989

The deregulation of transport services, both freight and passengers, has been undertaken in a number of countries with the aim of improving the economic efficiency of the sector. Round Table 83 sought to define the role of government in a deregulated market in areas such as safety, anti-trust legislation, and market access conditions, and looked at the experiences acquired to date in several countries. Three reports on this topic are included in this publication along with a summary of the discussions on these reports. The reports are: The Role of Government in a Deregulated Transport Market (Access, Competition, Safety), H. Baum (Universitat Gesamthochschule Essen, Essen, Germany); UK Experience with Freight and Passenger Regulation, M. Beesley (The London Business School, London, United Kingdom); and Regulatory Reform in the Transport Sector: Experience and Implications, The Japanese Delegation to the OECD, J. Noulton (Department of Transport, London), and M. Violland (ECMT, Paris, France).
