On Wednesday 28 February 2018, Madgwicks Lawyers hosted The Hon. Philip Dalidakis MP, Victorian Minister for Trade & Investment, Innovation & the Digital Economy and Small Business at an exclusive client event to outline what’s in store for 2018.

The Minister provided some key insights into his portfolio including:

Trade & Investment
Accelerating inbound investment to generate future growth for Victoria, a State rich in resources and resources rich in people.
Significant investment in schools, hospitals and transport, including level crossing removals, Skyrail, Metro Rail, West Gate Tunnel and Tullamarine & Monash Freeway expansions.

Innovation & the Digital Economy
The rapid rise of Artificial Intelligence (AI), one of the most dominant factors to have a disruptive impact on businesses.
The benefits from the availability of data to achieve improved efficiencies and resulting in greater economic growth.

Small Business
Challenges that keep small businesses awake at night, such as payroll tax which is often viewed as a deterrent to job creation.

Regional Victoria
Significant investment in regional Victoria to increase accessibility to the region, including the eradication of mobile blackspots.

We thank the Minister for his time and valuable contributions he provided.
