Background The JAP is the result of a collaborative project undertaken in by 7 RDAs from SEQ and RDA Northern Rivers NSW in 2012/13 SEQ Regional Development Framework – reviewed Roadmaps and policy from the 3 levels of government and identified common priority themes across SEQ and gaps in policy and action: “The Future of SEQ’s Manufacturing Sectors identified as a A Priority” Recent announcements regarding the state of Manufacturing in Australia have reinforced the SEQ community’s concerns
  4. 4. So what do we know about Manufacturing in SEQ? - Information patchy - Brisbane Marketing’s website  Manufacturing in Qld employs approx 187,000  Approx 18% GSP – mainly in SEQ SEQ Employment by Industry; 2006 2016 2026 Retail 205,000 263,193 293,651 Prop & Bus 172,412 237,287 292,156 Construction 136,860 143,689 180,626 Manufacturing 128,248 158,003 166,821 NIEIR Economic and Employment Forecasts 2008 (DSDIP & SEQ CoM - current study)
  5. 5. Contribution to exports
  6. 6. Importance of Manufacturing • Manufacturing makes large direct and indirect contributions to national – and regional – output, employment, investment and innovation. It’s one of our largest employers. • In particular it makes disproportionally large contributions to exports and R&D • Manufacturing has strong linkages across the economy both as suppliers to and purchasers from other businesses. It also has strong linkages with associated services including applied research, engineering, industrial design, process improvement, client support and product stewardship. PM’s Manufacturing Taskforce, Report of Non Govt Members, Aug 2012 • A dynamic and thriving Australian manufacturing sector is critical to the long term health of the region and nation - Lose it at our PERIL!
