Abstract Building a spatially competitive nationThis presentation sets out a blue-print for nation-wide industry transformation and growth. Spatial technologies now influence almost every aspect of the world’s economies and society. The next wave of growth will be unleashed through the establishment of a fully coordinated and strategic relationship between the government sector, the private sector and the research and academic sector. Growing the right knowledge infrastructure building, facilitating entrepreneurship, and providing incentives for innovation and R&D will be key. This presentation addresses the challenge of doing this for a whole nation.
