The Government has reinforced its commitment to manufacturing at a roundtable held in Canberra with industry associations, manufacturers, research organisations and universities.

Minister for Industry, Science and Technology Karen Andrews said the roundtable demonstrated the Government’s commitment to manufacturing and willingness to work with all stakeholders to grow the economy and create more jobs.

“Australia’s manufacturing industries are a vital element of our economy, they’re a big employer and producer of products and services,” Minister Andrews said.

“Manufacturing creates value across the economy through its demand for research and development, design and engineering services, production, logistics and after sales service.

“The Morrison Government is determined to build on our strengths, grasp new opportunities, and create high value jobs for Australians.

“The roundtable discussed ways to enable the transformation of our traditional and emerging manufacturing industries, to build our competitive advantage and thrive in global markets and value chains.

“Improving take up of technology, developing the skills of our workforce, increasing our export focus and enhancing productivity were also key points of consideration.”

The roundtable builds on the Morrison Government’s commitment to create a $160 million Manufacturing Modernisation Fund and support for manufacturing exporters through $5 million for a reinvigorated Australian Made Campaign.
