DGA meets with Government to discuss Code of Practice and PC Report

During May, Jodie Sangster (CEO) and Irene Halforty (Legal & Regulatory Affairs Manager) were in Canberra as part of DGA’s advocacy strategy, for a series of high-level government meetings with the Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet, the office of Minister Fifield, Minister for Communications and the Arts, and the office of Minister Taylor, Assistant Minister for Cities and Digital Transformation.

These meetings were focused around the recent release of the Productivity Commission’s Final Report into Data Availability & Use and DGA’s initiatives to safeguard Australia’s data future. The meetings were constructive with great interest and encouragement expressed by government in relation to DGA’s initiative for a principles-based self-regulatory regime.
