Innovation & Industry
A flexible and inclusive industry policy is crucial to our economic future and creating jobs.
There are many challenges to sections of Australia’s industry particularly from the mining boom.
The mining bubble is driving up the Australian dollar and hurting other sectors of the economy particularly manufacturing, education, and tourism.
Industry policy must assist industry with these challenges and support investment in innovation that can help these industries survive and flourish.
Innovation is central to the transformation of economy as we move to a sustainable clean energy economy.
