As many will be aware, Hon Clare Curran has been given the new ICT-related ministerial roles in the new Labour Government. But what does the future direction for New Zealand look like from a digital perspective, what will the proposed Govt Chief Technology Officer do, and what does the future of digital in both Government and Industry look like?

Come along to the first Wellington opportunity to hear from new ICT Minister Clare Curran as she lays out her vision for the future of digital in Government in New Zealand, discusses what Open Govt means to her, and takes your Q&A on any related matter.

Apologies for the short notice, but this is not to be missed event if you're interested in the future of digital and ICT in New Zealand.

Arrive from 4.30pm. Clare's talk will start promptly at 4.45pm, followed by Q&A. Light refreshments available from 5.30pm.

A special thanks to the KPMG team for providing the venue.
