Bring Manufacturing Back Home

I will always stand up for the manufacturing industry and the workers it supports in regional Queensland.

The key to securing Australia’s long-term economic future is a strong manufacturing industry.

This is important to create long-term permanent jobs and boost Australia’s self-sufficiency so we can be prepared for a future pandemic or economic crisis.

A stronger manufacturing sector means more trains will be built in Central Queensland, more ships will be maintained and built in Cairns and wind turbines will bear the Australian made logo.

Only Labor can bring manufacturing home, but Scott Morrison and the LNP don’t get it.

Years of LNP neglect means Australia has been left behind and now ranks last in manufacturing self-sufficiency when compared to the world’s developed economies.

Under their watch car manufacturing has collapsed, traineeships and apprenticeships have plummeted and no long-term plan to support the sector is in sight.

We can do better.

Labor’s commitment to roll out a National Rail Manufacturing Plan will create thousands of jobs and enrich our skills in heavy manufacturing.
