AIIA CEO Ron Gauci, said: “We welcome the opportunity to partner with the McGowan Government to promote innovation and technology throughout WA and its industries. We have proven expertise in driving the ICT industry forward across the country and are excited to continue our work in WA.

“The COVID-19 pandemic has presented a once in lifetime opportunity for major reform and restructure of our economy and society. We believe the road to economic recovery is paved with innovation and investment in technology.”

The AIIA says that with the large portfolio of work, it will appoint a dedicated Western Australia (WA) Executive Support Officer to support the function of the WA State Council, the AIIA CEO and the GM of Policy and Advocacy.
