About this Event

Manufacturing is critical to a modern Australian economy. AmCham brings a panel of business leaders to discuss how transforming Australian manufacturing will rebuild our economy.

Manufacturing is key to almost every supply chain and adds value across all sectors. Manufacturing is a capability that extends beyond production – by strategically investing and harnessing our world-class science and technology, Australia can open new markets and take more of our quality products to the world. Enabling digital technologies will also play a pivotal role in unlocking our potential and enable our local manufacturers to create entirely new products, processes, and business models.

  • Jeanne Johns, Managing Director and CEO, Incitec Pivot
  • Richard Macchiesi, General Manager | Innovation & Corporate Affairs, Visy
  • Dr Jens Goennemann, Managing Director, Advanced Manufacturing Growth Centre (AMGC)

  • Australian and international collaboration in various manufacturing initiatives
