The Australian Government is manufacturing a new future for our nation through the Modern Manufacturing Strategy.

The Strategy is a key feature of the Government’s JobMaker plan to harness Australian manufacturing capability and drive our economic recovery and future resilience. The vision for the Strategy is for Australia to be recognised as a high-quality and sustainable manufacturing nation that helps to deliver a strong, modern and resilient economy for all Australians.

Modern Manufacturing Initiative funding available

Modern Manufacturing Initiative funding is now open for manufacturing projects that meet eligibility under its Translation and Integration streams.

National Manufacturing Priority road maps

Road maps for the 6 priority areas have been developed with industry through specific taskforces to set out plans for both industry and Government to strengthen Australia’s manufacturing capability.

They will be released progressively in February and March 2021 as the work of the taskforces is completed.

COVID-19 has shaken and changed the world.

But history has shown that through adversity, greatness can be borne.

Australian manufacturers have risen to the challenge to deliver during COVID-19.

Now the Australian Government is unlocking their potential to deliver for our future.

Tinkering at the edges is not an option.

Our $1.3 billion Modern Manufacturing Initiative will help Australian manufacturers to grow and take on the world … because when they do it creates high-paid, lasting jobs – not just for this recovery, but for generations to come.

The Initiative will see us playing to our strengths – targeting our investment to areas where we have an advantage or a strategic priority.

Australians instinctively know that strong, successful manufacturing businesses make for a stronger country.

And by backing them - we’re sending a clear signal that not only is Australia open for business, but we mean business.

Let’s “Make it Happen”.
