NSW Government has raised the bar again and continues to lead the way on digital innovation.
Driving this is the recent release of digital.nsw - the strategy to make government more connected, customer focused and outcomes driven.
With these foundations in place, the 2017 NSW State Budget has never been more important as it will set the stage for the rapid pace of technological change for the next financial year.
Join Finance, Services & Property Minister Victor Dominello and Executive Director Policy and Innovation of DFSI Dawn Routledge for a deeper dive on the budget followed by a lively debate on what this means to our industry, the state, the Government and its citizens.
The Hon. Victor Dominello MP
Victor was born and raised in the Ryde area. He went to school at Marist Brothers Eastwood before studying law. He was a partner in a commercial law firm, where he represented clients in a number of landmark cases.
Victor was elected as Member for Ryde at a by-election in October 2008. He was re-elected at the 2011 state election.
In April 2011 he was sworn in as Minister for Aboriginal Affairs and Minister for Citizenship and Communities. His portfolio responsibilities included multicultural affairs, veterans’ affairs, volunteering and youth.
Following the Liberals & Nationals Government’s re-election in March 2015, Victor was sworn in as the state’s first Minister for Innovation and Better Regulation.
His portfolio responsibilities included Fair Trading, where he led a range of consumer affairs matters including strata title, home building compensation, real estate industry reform, free-range egg labelling, brothel regulation, biofuels, residential overcrowding and the establishment of a consumer complaints register.
