Manufacturers, researchers, investors and policy-makers are being invited to discuss advanced manufacturing and Australia’s place in the ‘new economy’ at an event in Melbourne on July 28.
Gordon Naylor, chief financial officer at CSL, and Andrew Stevens, Chair at the Advanced Manufacturing Growth Centre, are the guest speakers at the forum, organised by the Committee for Economic Development of Australia (CEDA).
Speakers will examine:
- The development of high-tech and innovative industries
- Strategic policy and the Industry Growth Centres
- Australia’s international competitiveness
- Capitalising on Australia’s cutting-edge research capabilities
- Where the jobs are and the skills needed to compete
A CEDA report released in 2014, Advanced manufacturing: Beyond the production line, identified significant opportunities in emerging, highly innovative and knowledge intensive products and services.
With a number of state and federal policy reviews, changes and investments underway, speakers at CEDA’s upcoming event will discuss the way forward for Australia’s economic development.
The forum is on Tuesday 28 July, from 11.45am to 2pm at the RACV Club, 501 Bourke Street, Melbourne.
Tickets are $175 for CEDA members and guests, or $300 for non-members. For more details, click here.
