The Bill underscores the government’s commitment to increase local manufacturing capabilities in Australia and foster economic resilience. By prioritising Australian-made goods and services, this legislation not only supports local businesses but also creates a positive environment for innovation and job creation.

As an organisation committed to fostering collaboration and innovation within industry, we recognise the importance of building sovereign capability through sustainable development and economic growth. The Bill has the potential to position Australia as a leader in the global transition towards a greener economy.

The “Future Made in Australia” Act aligns with our mission to promote collaboration and investment within the manufacturing industry, ensuring that businesses have the support they need to thrive in a competitive market landscape, said Warren Jansen, Chief Executive Officer, ICN National Office.
