Event overview

The growth in digital technologies is helping to open new markets and new access channels for government and business alike. Indeed, the Federal Government has set the target for Australia to be among the world's leading digital economies by the year 2020.

In realising the productivity and economic gains that can be made through greater engagement with the digital space, the challenge is to ensure emerging technologies and digital platforms are leveraged appropriately, but are ultimately accessible.

Presenting a variety of perspectives on the opportunities afforded by greater engagement in the digital economy, the panel discussion at this event will:

  • Evaluate the growth prospects for digital in the Australian economy;
  • Look at how digital platforms are revolutionising traditional sectors such as education and banking; and
  • Ask how we can bring about the rise of digitally engaged small and medium-size enterprises where currently, 85 per cent are without an online business strategy.

Following the panel, Australia Post Chief Executive, Ahmed Fahour will deliver a keynote address on how investment in broadband infrastructure will ultimately benefit our economy and the Australian community.
