The Minister for Broadband, Communications and the Digital Economy, Senator Stephen Conroy, today announced Australia will host the 2011 KANZ Broadband Summit in Hobart, Tasmania from 28 to 29 April.
“The Korea-Australia-New Zealand Broadband Summit has been held approximately every two years since 2003 on a rotational basis between the three countries and I am delighted it is now Australia’s turn to host this important collaboration with key Asia-Pacific neighbours,” Senator Conroy said.
“The KANZ Broadband Summit provides a unique opportunity for industry, research and government representatives from each of the three countries to share insights into their experience of developing broadband-enabled digital economies and to explore potential joint ventures.”
“I am particularly excited the 2011 KANZ Broadband Summit will be held in Tasmania, where the roll out of the National Broadband Network is well underway.”
“It is only fitting that discussions about what is possible in a digital world, delivered by high speed broadband, occur in the very place where this is becoming a reality,” Senator Conroy said.
Topics to be discussed at the Summit include convergence, digital business, digital education, telehealth, broadband policy and digital heritages.
The Summit is being held as part of the Australian-Korean bilateral Year of Friendship. 2011 has been declared the Australia-Korea Year of Friendship to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations and the strength of Australia-ROK relations.
The 2011 KANZ Broadband Summit is also supported by the Tasmanian Government.
