Agriculture & Manufacturing
The economic and defence security of Australia depends, to a large extent, on strong manufacturing and agricultural sectors as well as expertise in our logistic and transport infrastructure. Technological expertise and capability are fundamental to take advantage of future advances in these areas. Governments at all levels must encourage the industrial and technology industries to develop and grow with the appropriate, but not excessive, regulatory frameworks. The taxation system must be able to facilitate growth in technology, industry and research.
We must invest our efforts into the development of Australian manufacturing and agriculture to further establish our prominence within the Indo/Asia-Pacific region and economy. Our geography, resources and people provide us with the potential to develop and provide supply chains that will enable greater success across all other policy areas. This policy will also work to enable our regional partners the opportunities for mutual trading arrangements allowing them to concentrate their own areas of expertise complementing each other and help provide the potential to adopt more sustainable and collaborative pathways forward.
The AVP is committed to developing an Australian Manufacturing Strategy towards achieving all equipment and components that go into our Defence Force able to be manufactured from within Australia by 2030 - and in doing so, set the framework for comprehensive Australian owned and made manufacturing capabilities as a cohesive network with the ability to scale and support a self sustainable economy, with the potential to expand this further service our Asia-Pacific region - extending our economic strength and security in the process.
