Several of the nation’s leading manufacturers were present at Parliament House, in Canberra, as part of the Industry Growth Centre Showcase.
The Showcase is part of the Industry Growth Centre Initiative formed by the Federal government to drive an industry-led approach toward greater innovation, productivity and competitiveness.
The Advanced Manufacturing Growth Centre (AMGC), one of six growth centres, was established in 2015 to help steer Australian manufacturing in lifting its global footprint while driving the demand for high-paying jobs.
The Industry Growth Centre Showcase coincides with the announcement from the Minister for Industry, Science and Technology Karen Andrews on the formal extension of the Growth Centre Initiative.
Recognising the valuable impact and assistance Growth Centres provide industry, the Initiative maintains broad support across government.
To date, the AMGC has helped hundreds of local manufacturers in their transition to become smart, export-focused businesses.
