CEO of Dow Chemical, Andrew Liveris, with chairman of the AAMC, John Pollaers, and director of Resmed (and long-time CEO of Cochlear) Chris Roberts, at the launch of the Australian Advanced Manufacturing Council in June 2013.

There is no shortage of role models that prove that Australian manufacturers can tackle technological transformation to secure their place in global markets.
Innovation and creativity are key elements enabling Australian manufacturing companies to stay competitive in a globalised economy. What will it take to have more of this success, especially in the context of the looming automotive exit and the end of the resources boom? What can we learn from others’ success – and from our own?
