ICT Framework for the future
The ICT Framework for the Future was announced by the Prime Minister at the World Congress on Information Technology in February 2002.
A Steering Committee, comprising leaders from the ICT industry and the research sector in Australia, was formed to develop the Framework. Chaired by the Minister for Communications, Information Technology and the Arts, Senator Richard Alston, the Committee was assisted by expert working groups in Mapping and Foresighting.
McKinsey & Company was commissioned to provide a report on the strategic perspective of the ICT industry in Australia in a global context, Australia: Winning in the Global ICT Industry.
The Framework report, Enabling our Future, was released by the Government on 15 April 2003. It focuses on broad strategic directions for the Australian ICT sector with recommendations in key areas impacting on the future development of an internationally competitive Australian ICT industry.
