Futurism & Innovation My take on it all

Australia’s lagging competitiveness

The 2018 IMD World Digital Competitiveness Ranking has recently been released and Australia continues to wallow outside of the Top 10. After ranking 10 in 2014 and 9 in 2015 we’ve wallowed in the 13 -15 band for the last 3 years. In the vital area of communications technology we rank 56 out of 63 countries! The crippling of the NBN with FTTN instead of FTTP by the Federal Government undoubtedly plays a part. Innovation talk is cheap, real world action by Political parties of all persuasions is what’s needed and definitely not a new Coal Fired power station!
