In this seminar we will present views on the application of emerging eBusiness Standards to the evolution of Australia’s Digital Economy. In particular:


Australia is at the next step in its journey to a fully fledged digital economy. Standards play a significant role in achieving value in terms of efficiency, effectiveness and economy.

This is a rare opportunity for government and industry to hear about international experience in the implementation of eBusiness standards and develop an Australian perspective on what is required to take the next step.


• Where we came from.
• Where we are today.
• What we could do.
• What we should do.
