“Adobe works closely with all levels of government across the country as they embark on their digital transformation journeys. Digital has disrupted almost every aspect of our lives and it’s promising to see policy initiatives emerging to drive the innovation discussion forward,” Mr Robson said.
“Adobe’s s annual research into the state of digital across Asia Pacific consistently finds that skill shortages are a major obstacle to digital advancement. Increased investment in skills development will help businesses and governments to drive digital transformation, leading to increased efficiency, business growth and a greater experience for customers and citizens.”
“Today’s announcements are a welcome addition to the digital transformation discussion and I look forward to working with the Australian Government, and all governments, to drive the innovation agenda forward.”
