Latest News

13 May 2022 – Government announced funding for new manufacturing initatives

The Treasurer has outlined the government’s aims for growing a modern and resilient manufacturing industry. Mr Frydenberg said events in Ukraine reminded us that we must increase our self-reliance. New funding will make Victoria the first place in the southern hemisphere to manufacture the mRNA vaccines.

An additional $200 million in funding has been promised as part of the Regional Accelerator Program, to strengthen sovereign manufacturing capability. An additional $53.9 million is to be committed to the Manufacturing Modernisation Fund Round 3, to co-fund capital investments for small and medium manufacturers.


April 7, 2022 – $250 million to support “shovel ready” projects

An extra $328 million has been allocated over five years for manufacturing programs not restricted to the regions. This includes $250 million for the Manufacturing Modernisation Fund which targets “shovel ready” projects, and $6.9 million for new Manufacturing Investment Plans. The spending was detailed in the budget as text but did not appear as a line item because of commercial in confidence clauses.

More than 200 projects worth a combined $3.4 billion have received a government commitment for funding under the MMS. But only 143 projects have executed agreements, worth $317.8 million, and just $113 million has reached manufacturers so far. This is well short of the near billion dollars’ worth of announcements made by the federal government.


28 February 2022 – Minister Taylor highlights Australian manufacturing resilience

The minister for Industry, Energy and Emission Reductions has highlighted the importance of pre- and post-production roles in the manufacturing process. He said new technologies and production methods are becoming more focused on bespoke, higher value, advanced manufacturing.

Australian manufacturers are undergoing a test of resilience following the COVID-19 pandemic. The most recent challenges have been related to pressure on workforces and supply chains. Manufacturing Priorities of Space, Medical Products, Food and Beverage, Defence and Recycling and Clean Energy are part of the Modern Manufacturing Strategy. Collaboration stream can co-fund up to one third of eligible project costs. $107.2m Supply Chain Resilience Initiative aims to strengthen access to critical inputs and products. 84 Australian businesses awarded $55m to develop new technologies and create high-skilled jobs.


31 May 2021 – Christian Porter delays announcement on $50M of Covid response grants

Embattled Minister for Industry, Science and Technology, Christian Porter delays the announcements of Covid response grants for at least another month.

Round 2 of the Manufacturing Modernisation Fund is supposed to support transformation in small and medium manufacturing businesses with $50 million made available. Mr Porter, is currently on mental health leave after historical rape allegations were made against him. Mr Porter is the fifth Industry minister in the Coalition government in the last five years, and the seventh Industry minister since the Coalition won government in 2013. Mr Porter is also in the midst of legal action against the ABC over its reporting of the historical rape allegations made against him.

Former Minister for Industry, Science and Technology, Karen Andrews, said the MMF Round Two was a key element of the government’s $1.5 billion Modern Manufacturing Strategy. “The Morrison Government knows that manufacturing is central to our nation’s economic future and creating jobs for the recovery from COVID-19 and for future generations.

This delay will cause the postponement of over 2,500 new jobs and the ability for Australian manufacturing to recover from Covid.

04 May 2021 – Doubt over local mRNA plans as major companies pull out of Australia

Vaccine development experts say it will take at least $250 million plus the support of a major pharmaceutical company to set up mRNA manufacturing in Australia, cooling hopes of a local jab in the next year.

Manufacturing a vaccine under the tightly controlled conditions demanded by medical regulators is an enormous, costly and difficult challenge that only a few companies globally are capable of.

However, since the start of the pandemic, big pharmaceutical companies have been pulling out of manufacturing in Australia.

Only two companies – Pfizer and Moderna – make COVID-19 mRNA vaccines that have been approved for use anywhere in the world.

Pfizer has already ruled out making its vaccine in Australia in the short term.


05 October 2020 – Government wants to boost Australian manufacturing after learning lessons of COVID-19

The Federal Government will pump close to $1.5 billion into Australia’s manufacturing sector, outlining plans to shore up local production and strengthen supply chains in the wake of COVID-19.

Under the manufacturing strategy unveiled on Wednesday, $107 million will be dedicated to strengthening supply lines for essential goods.


01 October 2020 – Prime Minister plan to boost manufacturing and create more jobs

Industry will be promised $1.5 billion to sustain local manufacturing as part of a budget plan that aims to secure a “sovereign capability” in six priority areas ranging from food to medicine and clean energy.

The government estimates its manufacturing plan could create 80,000 direct jobs and about 300,000 more indirect jobs by helping companies modernise their factories and ramp up exports.

The six priority sectors to receive the new funding will be resources technology and critical minerals processing; food and beverage manufacturing; medical products; clean energy and recycling; defence; and space.
