This paper addresses the topic of meeting global challenges for Australian business and especially meeting the challenges of doing business in a global electronic environment. The author highlights three key points : the growth prospects of Australia's major corporations will depend on their ability to "reinvent" their strategies, structures and operations; the greatest risk to Australia's future economic growth is internal; there are many structural flaws in the present business tax system, and some of the government's tax reform proposals will also potentially disadvantage Australian multinationals.
