This online engagement was hosted on YourSAy from 17 December 2019 to 28 February 2020. Below is a record of the engagement.

We want to hear your ideas on how we can focus our efforts within the Hi-Tech sector to unlock new growth through investment, exports, innovation, collaboration and new jobs.

What is being decided?

Growth State: our plan for prosperity is an initiative to promote industry growth by responding to their needs and leveraging South Australia’s competitive advantages.

Our Hi-Tech Sector Discussion Paper opens a conversation on how we can grow the Hi-Tech sector in South Australia, which provides opportunities in various industries including:

  • Creative Industries
  • Defence
  • Space Industries
  • Energy and Minerals
  • Food, Wine and Agribusiness
  • Health and Medical Industries
  • International Education
  • Tourism

We are inviting representatives of the Hi-Tech sector to explore the opportunities and challenges in South Australia and to contribute to Growth State by being part of the development of an industry-led sector strategy.

Industry and stakeholder input will help us set the goals for the Hi-Tech sector and determine where we want to be in 2030.

How can your input influence the decision?

Feedback received through this industry engagement process will inform the development of the Hi-Tech Sector Strategy 2030; a 10 year plan to support the growth of Hi-Tech industries in South Australia.

As a contributor, you will also have the opportunity to provide feedback on the draft strategy.

Get involved?

Read the Hi-Tech Sector Discussion Paper and have your say by:

What are the next steps?

Feedback on the Discussion Paper will be used to develop the Draft Hi-Tech Sector Strategy, which is expected to be finalised in April 2020. 

The Final Strategy will be released by August 2020 and will be available on this site. We will work with industry to implement the Strategy and support South Australia's Hi-Tech sector to grow. 

Once developed, the Hi-Tech Sector Strategy will enable government and industry to integrate these strategies into the South Australian Government’s Growth State: our plan for prosperity initiative.
