When asked about how the government is spending its money on internet equipment and taxes, the government says it needs to protect public safety and national security.
But it has been slow to put together its budget, which is expected to be released in the next two weeks.
The government is also expected to announce plans to close several of its schools over fears of the spread of cyber attacks, but these will be phased out over time.
The budget is likely to contain a large increase in the country’s defence budget, though not as much as previously reported, as the government has not yet identified a specific target for this spending.
The US$9 billion defence budget is expected for the next three years, up from the current US$6.6 billion.
A number of countries in the world have already decided to spend billions on military equipment and cyber security.
In the US, the Pentagon has already announced plans to spend $1.5 trillion over five years, including $400 billion for a new generation of missiles and $700 million for the F-35 fighter jet.
But a spokesman for US President Donald Trump told a news conference in February that the military was looking at spending more than $5 trillion to build a new fleet of aircraft and ships.
In Australia, the Defence Force has already spent more than a billion dollars on new fighter jets and missiles, with the budget expected to increase by another billion dollars in the coming years.
But defence analysts say this will not necessarily mean Australia will be spending more on the military in the future.
The United States and Britain have both decided to reduce their defence budgets to more manageable levels, and the US is expected spend less on its military.
But the Australian Defence Force says the cost of maintaining and upgrading its own equipment has also risen sharply in recent years, and it has also been forced to reduce its number of ships.
