The digital environment is rapidly evolving in Australia and around the world, impacting every industry, business, government and citizen.

AIIA’s policy priorities are underpinned by our vision to build a world class information, communications & technology industry, delivering productivity, innovation and leadership for Australia.

We work with our Board, State and Territory Councils, Special Interest Groups and members generally to identify and advocate the issues that will enable the Association to support growth in Australia’s digital economy and the growth and capability of Australia’s ICT sector.


The AIIA Board has endorsed five areas of policy priority for the Association to focus on through to 2017

Skills

Innovation

Privacy and Security

Government Digitisation

Internet of Things


These priorities reflect analysis of feedback from members and an environmental scan of issues currently facing the digital industry and the economy generally in Australia.

AIIA is currently working with State Councils, Special Interest Groups, and members to develop detailed policy positions, including recommended actions in each of these priority areas.

Following input from members, final policy positions will be published online mid November 2015.

In the meantime, discussion of many of these subjects can be found in the range of policy submissions authored by AIIA.
