The world is a better place because of technology.
I’m not saying it’s a silver bullet.
But it is a step in the right direction.
Technology has opened up new horizons, and it’s the beginning of a new era in Australian business.
And as Australia’s technology boom enters its fourth decade, the world is becoming a better, more vibrant place.
It’s no longer about what you know, but what you want to know.
Technology, technology, technology is what has opened the door for Australians to get involved in their local economy.
That means we can get involved as much as we want, with whatever we like, whenever we want.
And the world has been better off for it.
Read more A lot of this is because of a combination of factors, including the fact that we’re getting more people into our workforce.
The same is true for companies in the tourism, manufacturing and agriculture sectors.
And we’re also seeing a massive change in how we look after our environment.
Australia has seen some of the biggest changes in climate change and air quality in recent history, but we also have a huge opportunity to make a big difference in the world around us.
We need to make sure we keep pace.
We can’t just get ahead of the curve, but stay ahead of it.
The Australian Government is investing more in clean energy, with $20 billion of new funding over the next five years.
But we can also make our economy stronger and more competitive by making sure we invest in our communities.
And it’s about doing that now.
The Government has also set up the Clean Energy Transition Fund to support communities that need more help to transition away from fossil fuels.
This means that money is being put in place to support renewable energy projects across the country.
It also gives the Government the power to put money into communities and businesses, such as schools, hospitals and universities, to help them transition away.
And these funds will be targeted to the communities that are most in need.
This is where we should be focusing our attention.
We’re going to invest $7 billion over the coming four years in the Clean Technology Fund.
This will provide money to clean technologies that are currently not available.
And there’s also an initiative called Smart Towns Australia that will fund schools, community and community-led clean technologies.
The Clean Energy Transformation Fund will provide $8.5 billion over three years to invest in clean technologies to increase energy security and provide cleaner and more affordable electricity for Australians.
There’s also the Clean Power Australia initiative which is about investing $10 billion over five years in clean power projects across Australia.
And Australia’s leading solar power companies are set to receive $1 billion in support over the three years, and a $2.2 billion boost in renewable energy funding over five.
But there are more initiatives to come.
There are a lot of things that the Government is committed to and we’ll be delivering more on this over the four years.
And in the short term, we’ve got a number of things to look at and take action on.
So in the coming months and years we’ll look at all of these things to see if they’re going in the direction we need.
And when we do, I’m sure you’ll see a lot more investment in clean technology in Australia.
It is an exciting time.
We have a lot to look forward to in Australia’s future.
