China is of particular interest to Australia's TMT sector with around $9.4 billion of imports being in the telecommunication equipment and IT products markets. Obviously, the ban of Huawei for 5G equipment will shift the mix but the large bulk of consumer electronics are still manufactured in China.

    Disruption In – Banking on disruption

    ,

    Banks act as the intermediary between borrowers and lenders. Digital disruption is the enabling platform that connects borrowers and lenders while circumventing banks. Where banks once relied on scale (including brick and mortar infrastructure), asymmetric information barriers, regulatory barriers and vertical integration – technology is unbundling the value chain.
