It was fantastic to have the Minister for Industry, Science and Technology, Karen Andrews MP visit the electorate this week to hear directly from our local manufacturers about their experiences during the pandemic and how they can help Australia’s recovery.
There are 433 manufacturing businesses in the Berowra electorate, employing 3,555 people. Being such a large and diverse electorate presents us with a unique opportunity to grow our manufacturing industry across a variety of sectors including food, beverage and technology.
In the recent Federal Budget, the Morrison Government announced a commitment to expanding the Manufacturing Modernisation Fund.
The fund is backing our small and medium manufacturers to help them expand and grow, driving a jobs-led recovery. It currently supports 200 projects worth $215 million across the nation to help upgrade their production.
Round two is now open to applications. For more information or to apply, click here: https://www.industry.gov.au/news/fast-tracking-investment-for-manufacturers-to-modernise-and-upskill
