Manufacturing Working Group

The Manufacturing Working Group provides input to the Export Council of Australia Board, the Government Relations Sub-committee and Export Council of Australia Management on export-related issues specific to the manufacturing sector. The Manufacturing group plays a major role in research and will be the conduit through which information is fed through to other industry-based organisations (Association Partners) with whom the Export Council of Australia has a formal relationship.

Issues

The Manufacturing Group meets regularly to discuss issues of importance to their industry sectors and to feed back discussion outcomes to the Export Council of Australia Board, Council and Sub-committees.  Discussion topics might include:

• Industry capability
• Barriers to export
• Government policy (Federal, State & Local)
• Free Trade Agreements
• Marketing of Australian products/services
• Market opportunities
• Research focus areas

The Manufacturing Working Group will include export companies from:

• Textiles, clothing & footwear
• Automotive
• Aerospace
• Furniture & lighting
• Food & beverage
• Wood & paper products
• Machinery & equipment
• Printing, publishing & recorded media

Joining an Industry Working Group

Industry Working Groups will be run and managed by the Group members.  Working Group members do not have to be ECA Board or Council members but must be members of the Export Council of Australia. Participants will be invited based on their skill, knowledge and enthusiasm for making a real contribution to their industry.  Group members may be invited to join the Government Relations Sub-committee.
