Making Connections, Filling the Gaps - Towards a Digital Region

  • Year: 2011
  • Author: Williams, Tim
  • Publisher: RDA Mid North Coast
  • Published Location: Port Macquarie, NSW
  • Country: Australia
  • State/Region: New South Wales

The aim of the strategy is to exploit three key linked opportunities in the region:

  • the advent of high speed broadband
  • the fast-growing shift to online public services and engagement with citizens, at local government, federal and state level
  • the emergence of a digital economy and clusters of manufacturing, creative, health and knowledge based industries in the region

High Speed Broadband and The National Broadband Network initiative - a potential game-changer for regional Australia - can be a catalyst for all these and for the greater diversification of the economy, if we are organised and cooperate to exploit the opportunity. The strategy guides RDA MNC and partners on the actions to be taken to progress these aims.
