Internet Australia has called on the Government and the Opposition to support a national forum designed to bring people together to find an agreed path towards Australia’s digital future. “Our proposal is for a Digital Future Forum where industry leaders, trade unions, academics and politicians put aside their competitive tensions and concede that we have much more to agree about than we have to argue over when it comes to our future economic prosperity,” said Internet Australia CEO Laurie Patton.
“We have written to the PM and the Opposition Leader asking them to support the Forum. We have asked the Government to fund the event to be run later this year or early next year”.
