Details

While other advanced economies have been facing slow economic growth, the performance of the Australian economy over the last few years has been commendable which can be attributed to factors such as the strength and stability of the Australian financial system, the fiscal and monetary policy response, flexibility of the exchange rate and the performance of its major trading partners, particularly China. The confidence around the country's economy is being reflected in enterprise ICT investments, as most enterprises in Australia are spending significantly across all major technological areas.
