Australia’s digital future

Access to improved telecommunications in regional, rural and remote Australia is imperative to facilitate economic growth across agriculture through innovation in production, improved market access and enhanced consumer connectivity. The regional/urban interface is critical with regard to transport logistics and trade – how goods are ordered and marketed, and flow in and out of cities. Digital technology (or lack of) is disrupting the agribusiness supply chain, while the digital economy can remove redundant intermediaries and create a host of opportunities to engage more directly with domestic and global customers.
