Presented by John Lord AM, Chairman of Huawei Technologies Australia
Wednesday, 18th September 2019
This event is fully booked or has passed.
China and the broader APAC region are emerging as key drivers of technology. This is being driven by a growing and better educated middle-class in the region. Australia seems reluctant to be part of this region and continues to take its lead from the Western Hemisphere.
Huawei employs 80,000 people in R&D and is a key part of innovation in the Telecommunications sector worldwide. By banning the use of Chinese technology in key parts of 5G in Australia, this will diminish competition, slow the roll-out and lead to higher prices.
How can Australia better leverage the emerging technologies from the region and remain a ?Smart State??
The venue for this year is in Doltone House, The Loft in Jones Bay Wharf - see the following link for details:
