Plan to boost Aust Industry participation is good policy
The Federal Government’s “Boosting Australian Industry Participation” plan announced by Industry Minister Kim Carr is good policy that supports Australian industry to be a more active player in competing for Government tenders,” Australian Industry Group Chief Executive Heather Ridout has said.
“Investment in this area makes good sense as Industry Capability Networks (ICN) have a lot of solid runs on the board in delivering jobs and work to Australian industry.
“It will enhance the important work of our Industry Capability Network, create industry champions and implement industry participation plans for major projects, while maintaining a competitive and open tender system.
“It will be important that the new Supplier Advocates are located directly within industry in order to maximise opportunities,” Ridout said.
