This report investigates some Australian experiences of industry adjustment to policy reform. Four industry case studies are examined – dairy, citrus fruit, pig meat and rock lobsters. Each case study involved a different type of policy change. The three agricultural industries have experienced adjustment pressures from trade related policy reforms. The rock lobster industry has adjusted to the removal of open access rights to a naturally occurring resource.
