Australia's dynamic tech sector

As we move into an increasingly digital world, emerging technologies are forecast to fundamentally change and improve how we work, travel and communicate with each other.

Technologies like artificial intelligence, blockchain and quantum computing are creating new opportunities for people, businesses and the global economy. Australian tech companies continue to be at the forefront of this new and fast-changing world.

Over the past two decades, Australia’s transition to a services-based economy has driven new developments in key industry sectors, including the use of blockchain in finance, immersive simulation technologies in education, robotics in medical procedures and the Internet of Things in agriculture.

This has seen Australian companies developing and commercialising new disruptive technologies across these sectors.

Australia’s Commissioner General for Expo 2020 Dubai, Justin McGowan, says that sharing Australia’s technological innovations with the world is one of the key opportunities for Australian business to participate in the expo.

“Australia is one of the Asia-Pacific region’s leading centres for tech innovation,” Mr McGowan said.

“Not only is it home to an A$11 billion medical technology and pharmaceutical industry but it is internationally recognised for its pioneering work in agriculture and food production, delivering savvy solutions to global challenges.

"Combine this with Australia's fast-growing edtech industry and its emerging reputation as a leading home for fintech innovation, and it becomes clear that Australia’s dynamic tech-sector represents an exciting new frontier for doing business and investment.”

As part of its participation in Expo 2020 Dubai, Australia will host a range of events at the Australian Pavilion designed to foster business and trade opportunities and forge new partnerships between Australia and more than 190 other participating nations.
