I’m committed to preparing the Australian economy and workforce for the jobs and industries of the future.
Global and technological changes mean that Australia faces a number of unique challenges in the decades to come.
Australia should be an Asia-Pacific leader in innovation and technology, making use of our natural strengths, our highly-skilled workforce, and our world-class research centres. I’ll work to help Australia compete better in the technology era.
At the same time, changes in Australia’s strategic landscape are introducing new risks and uncertainties for our security as a nation. I will help Australia chart a course in a more challenging geopolitical environment, to protect our freedom and security and ensure our neighbourhood remains peaceful and stable.
