Australian Government Allocates $700000 To Blockchain Study

The government of Australia plans on building a new space agency.

"These new functions include administering a new civil penalty regime to combat the non-consensual sharing of intimate images, and providing guidance and support to Australians of all ages who experience online abuse", budget documents state.

Schmidt said, ANU was all set to have a significant part to support a new space agency in the nation which is reported to support financially by £28 million (A$50 million) of seed funding in national budget that will be declared on 8 May, 2018.

Engineers Australia National Manager of Policy Jonathan Russell stated that while there appears to be declining investment, this represents the government shifting away from goal grants to state governments and towards more seed money for private corporations to create projects and find investors to support those projects. The initiative was cited in an consultation paper with the previous research done by the country related to blockchain and its future potential as a Digital Economy initiative solution.

The Budget didn't speak much to National Broadband Network, apart from to reiterate that it would be about 75 percent complete by the end of 2018 and was on track to be completed by 2020. This includes funding to extend the Australia-India strategic research fund for a further four years.

Board Discussed Financial Plan For FY19, Not Videocon Loan Issue: ICICI Bank
On the credit expansion, the statement said, the year-on-year growth in domestic advances was 15 per cent on March 31, 2018. Meanwhile, the government nominee director on the board of ICICI Bank did not attend a board meeting of the bank on Monday.


"The small business entity turnover threshold has also been lifted from $2 million to $10 million, which has extended access to a range of small business tax concessions", the Budget read. The Pawsey Supercomputing Centre in Perth and the National Computational Infrastructure facility at Australian National University perform high-speed calculations to support medical research, mining, nanotechnology, urban planning, construction, transport and energy.

ALC managing director Michael Kilgariff said the Commonwealth Government should build on last year's budget investment made in inland rail by supporting dedicated connections to key ports and making freight rail projects eligible for funding support under the National Rail Program.

This will deliver $1.3 billion to support Australia as a global health industry leader in medical technology, biotechnology and pharmaceuticals while improving health outcomes for all Australians through investments in medical innovation.

The MRFF will give $240 million to the Frontier Health and Medical Research Program to support new ideas and discoveries, and A$125 million for research into chronic conditions with a focus on diabetes and heart disease. The budget also allocated $37 million over three years for the Digital Earth Australia program to improve the quality of satellite data.

$125 million for the Million Minds Mental Health Research Mission to support more research and better diagnosis and treatment of mental illness. Plans have already been drawn for the A$20 million first project - Mackenzie's Mission - a pre-conception screening trial for rare and debilitating birth disorders including Spinal Muscular Atrophy, Fragile X and Cystic Fibrosis.
