Ongoing and rapid advances in technology are creating significant demographic, societal and environmental shifts that have also become key drivers of economic change and growth.

Our state’s focus is on encouraging businesses and entrepreneurs to start, innovate and grow their companies in South Australia and to collaborate with other businesses to build commercial partnerships and opportunities.

A highly skilled and responsive workforce will provide businesses with ready access to the right mix of trained employees needed to drive innovation, improve productivity and take up new opportunities in global markets. Such a workforce also makes South Australia a more desirable investment option and a drawcard for migrants who can provide an injection of skills, talent and ideas into our economy to complement our local skill base.
