BizTech joins the Technology Council of Australia

Biztech Lawyers is pleased to announce we have joined the Technology Council of Australia, the peak body for Australia’s growing technology industry.

The Australian technology industry already contributes $167 billion annually to the economy and employs 861,000 people. The Tech Council wants to take that to one million jobs by 2025.

To do that, our industry needs a peak industry body that understands how to build up our domestic talent pool. Beyond that, we need a well resourced, trusted advisor to government on policy change, culture change and shaping the sector.

“The Australian technology industry has been crying out for a peak body that reflects its diversity and can help determine its future. The impact of the Technology Council of Australia in less than a year has been profound and we’re thrilled to join as a member,” said Anthony Bekker.

“We have also seen firsthand our clients experience inhibitors to growth thanks to the still evolving Australian technology regulatory landscape. We’re excited to contribute our voice to the Tech Council of Australia to enable our industry to deliver bigger and better things for Australia.”
