Developing high quality public policy is the principal focus of the Tech Council

Our priorities are to boost growth of the Australian tech sector; support talent attraction and development; and ensure regulatory settings across the economy work for the tech-enabled economy.

Our public policy priorities are underpinned by a desire to see an Australia where people and businesses have confidence harnessing the power of technology, where investors have confidence backing Australian technology companies, and where technology companies have confidence investing locally, including in research and development.

Together, we aim to:


To see 1m Australians employed in jobs in tech by 2025


To increase tech’s economic contribution to $250bn by 2030

To make Australia the best country in the world to create and invest in tech companies
