Prime Minister Anthony Albanese was the keynote speaker at the event hosted by Sky News and The Australian.
In his address, he acknowledged productivity growth is at record lows and outlined some ways to get our country back on track.
“We need to think about ways that technology can empower workers, freeing people up from the routine parts of their job, basic data entry, record keeping, paperwork, and giving them back that time to focus on producing and innovating and caring and educating.
There are substantial productivity gains we can achieve if businesses have the confidence to adopt new technologies earlier and more widely, and Australian workers have the skills to use technologies more strategically and effectively.
I’m sure the business community will, as it always does, show leadership here through competition and innovation and best practice.”
