Election 2016: Innovation Debate 

The Election Debate 2016: Innovation Policy was the election’s first ministerial debate on innovation and digital transformation, in collaboration with a cross section of the sector’s most important industry groups. This was an opportunity to gather insights into the major political party’s industry plans for the next three years and beyond. Importantly, it was also an opportunity for the Government and the Opposition to put some flesh on the bare bones of policy discussion that has so far occurred during this debate.
