    Prime Minister Scott Morrison is hoping to make it safer and easier for individuals and businesses to use government services, saving them time and money.

    The biggest single piece of the digital technology package is more than $400 million to modernise business registers, allowing companies to quickly view, update and maintain their data in one location.

    Almost $30 million will be spent supporting private companies in the agriculture, mining, logistics and manufacturing sectors invest in 5G technology trials.

    The various initiatives build on $4.5 billion previously announced to deliver ultra-fast internet to millions of homes and businesses through the national broadband network.

    They also complement an existing $1.67 billion cybersecurity strategy and investments in online safety.
