Department of Industry, Innovation & Science: Consultations are open for a Digital Economy Strategy

Australians are encouraged to have their say on the digital future of the nation under a Digital Economy Strategy to be released by the Australian Government early next year.

The strategy will be developed in consultation with industry, thought-leaders, small and medium sized businesses, government, community as well as the broader private sector and will outline how we can best work together to seize the benefits of digital transformation and secure Australian jobs into the future.

The Digital Economy Strategy will explore topics including digital infrastructure, digital business capability, and building digital skills and inclusion. It will consider:

  • How we can drive productivity within existing industries, build on competitive strengths and develop new ones, take advantage of economy-wide changes and open up new growth sources.
  • How we develop world-leading digital businesses for globally engaged, innovative, high-growth businesses of all sizes.
  • How we can empower all Australians with the skills and confidence to succeed in a digital economy.

Submission Requirements & Due Date

  • Public submissions¬†close¬†30 November 2017.
