Event overview

Over the next decade, Australia will need to realise additional sources of income and employment to support long-term economic growth, particularly in the non-resources sector. A major potential source of growth is in the advanced manufacturing sector. 

CEDA will launch its first Policy Perspective for 2014 - Advanced Manufacturing: Beyond the production line - in Melbourne on April 30, to discuss the potential for the sector.

The event will provide a platform for discussing the themes and recommendations of the report and engage in debate on how we can grow the sector. Providing background, context and an examination of Australia's comparative advantage in the sector, to the resurgence of manufacturing in advanced economies, Advanced Manufacturing report authors and industry leaders will present an insightful discussion into advanced manufacturing in Australia. Responding to the question of whether Victoria could position itself as the national hub for advanced manufacturing, Victorian Minister for Manufacturing, David Hodgett, will deliver a keynote address.

High value-add or advanced manufacturing industries have the potential to play a significant role in supporting the long-term growth of Australia. Join CEDA for the release of our Advanced Manufacturing report and add your voice to the discussion.
