Global Trade and Investment Megatrends identifies five megatrends that will reshape global trade and investment in the coming months and years in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, with the report offering nine strategic actions for governments and industry to position Australia for economic success.
Co-authored by CSIRO’s Data61 and Australian Trade and Investment Commission (Austrade), Global Trade and Investment Megatrends uses strategic foresight to provide evidence-based insights.
The report estimates that a decade’s worth of digital transformation occurred within the space of a few months, resulting in the rapid expanse of the international digital technology sector and presenting Australia with the opportunity to drive the nation's economic recovery through trade and investment with digital and data-driven science.
"Data science and technology will be crucial to drive our economic recovery and build our future resilience," says Jon Whittle, Director of Data61.
"Digital technologies, such as artificial intelligence, robotics and data science can help us create new sources of wealth generation for the nation, and shift the dial for Australia on an international level."
