InterAct Melbourne State Election Special

Interactive Breakfast Forum


On 24 November 2018 Victoria will hold elections to determine the direction and priorities of government until November 2022.

At the forefront of campaigns from all parties and candidates will be policy on Health, Education, Transport, Triple Zero and Social Services.

Every aspect of every element of every policy, will be both orchestrated and heavily dependent on technology.

Put simply, technology is in-arguably policy fuel and needs to be more than an afterthought in a manifesto or policy platforms.

Have your say in Victoria's IT Future!
