SETTING THE AGENDA FOR THE BEACHES TECH FUTURE

A new Government strategy will highlight the importance of digital skills in the Beaches, outline how local businesses can save time and money and deliver better services.

Unveiled by the Liberal National Government, Australia’s Tech Future details how Australians can work together to deliver a strong, safe and inclusive economy, ensuring shared benefits from digital technology.

Jason Falinski says the strategy highlights the trillions of dollars in potential economic benefits for Australia, and the social opportunities that digital technologies like artificial intelligence, blockchain, Internet of Things and quantum computing will bring to benefit the Beaches locals, particularly small business owners.

“Embracing digital technologies will continue to drive Australia’s 27 years of uninterrupted economic growth, improve quality of life and ensure every Australian benefits,” Mr Falinski said.

The report looks at 150 existing programs, policies and strategies that contribute to achieving our vision, and details how Australia can lead the global digital economy.

“The Beaches small businesses are improving profits and working less hours by adopting new technologies like robotics and remote sensors.”

As new industries are created, for various new products and services, the Government will work to ensure the adoption of new technologies brings even more quality jobs for the Beaches of older industries and all qualifications, as well as improvements in quality of life and increased connectedness.

 

“The Liberal National Government’s record on job creation speaks for itself – over 300,000 jobs have been created over the last 12 months, most of which are full time,” Mr Falinski said.

“We need to draw on the opportunities from digital technology in the Beaches and this report identifies key areas to focus on.
