KPMG's discussion paper on Manufacturing Competitiveness in Australia was developed in collaboration with John Pollaers, CEO Pacific Brands and through discussions with key industry executives and government stakeholders, with a view to redefine the traditional concept of manufacturing.
The outcomes we have been looking to achieve with this paper and by contributing to the debate are to:
- redefine manufacturing in Australia
- propose a framework for broader industry and government to engage on opportunities for the manufacturing industry
- encourage industry to raise its leadership to shape and drive a more proactive and collaborative plan to transition Australia to a high value manufacturing economy
- assist government in identifying practical solutions to attract investment, stimulate productivity (human and capital), substantially reduce the cost of doing business and increase access to growth markets.
