Abstract

This volume is divided into ten parts with each addressing specific topics as outlined in the Kluwer series on Law and Business. In the Introduction to this work, readers are provided with some background about Australia in terms of its geography, cultural composition and political systems. This discussion is followed by a brief outline of the population, the economy and social and cultural values of Australians. Cyber law terminology and concepts are introduced to ensure that there is a consistency of use and understanding. This leads to a discussion of Australia’s competitive position and challenges in the knowledge and information economy and more particularly the state of the economy vis-à-vis its participation in the digital economy. A discussion of e-government follows in line with the government’s role in promoting e-commerce and business through policy initiatives and how infrastructure challenges are being met. The achievements here are examined through the prism of international comparisons.
