Off the back of Budget announcements and the ongoing economic recovery of the state in the wake of COVID-19, the Paluszczuk Government continues to provide crucial support for the digital economy. A pledge of funds towards whole-of-government cyber-security, online COVID services and the Digital Archives Program, as well as a surge in the number of digital projects in the health, education and transport departments, reflects the Queensland Government’s focus on upscaling tech capabilities while also supporting community needs.
Despite the mainstay of Leeanne Enoch as the Minister of Digital Economy, the exit of Chris Fechner as the state’s inaugural Chief Digital and Customer Officer and the state’s digital strategy ‘DIGITAL1ST’ coming to an end indicate the Sunshine State is looking toward the horizon in the next steps of its digital and technological innovation. The FST Government Queensland 2022 conference will navigate attendees through the state’s responses regarding its recovery after recent crises, as well as its strategies to enhance citizen services and support the streamlining of agency operations.
