The Hon Ed Husic MP

The Hon Ed Husic MP

Shadow Minister Ed Husic has a well-established interest in digital innovation and the growth of Australia’s digital economy.
Elected to Federal Parliament in 2010, the Western Sydney-based MP has advocated for policies designed to promote early stage and digital innovation - because of its ability to generate the firms and jobs of the future. He also argued for the need to sharpen the national focus on preparing for the impact of automation and technology on current and future jobs.
Leading into the 2016 federal election, Ed was heavily involved in the development of Opposition policy designed to encourage the growth of startups and digital entrepreneurship. He also championed policies to help accelerate the creation of startup communities beyond Australia's capital cities.
After the 2016 election Ed was promoted to the front bench as Shadow Minister for the Digital Economy, as well as Shadow Minister for Employment Services, Workforce Participation and the Future of Work.
He previously held the positions of Parliamentary Secretary to Prime Minister and Parliamentary Secretary for Broadband
