Mapping COVID-19 Manufacturer Response Register
Australian manufacturers continue to raise their hands to be involved in tackling COVID-19. Since the launch of the Manufacturer Response Register in mid-March, AMGC has now received over 2,100 submissions from organisations and individuals willing to support all levels of governments in response to the current pandemic.
As you can see from the attached map – offers of assistance are coming from across Australia.
Federal and State governments have launched several initiatives to tap into the expertise listed in the Register and some of you have started to be part of working groups. At the same time, this Register is helping the Australian Government with its longer-term strategy on how to leverage the diversity of manufacturing capabilities for future requirements and preparations.
AMGC, in conjunction with Federal and State Governments, is focussing on capability matching. This process is underway to ensure a coordinated response to demands for essential products.
While some respondents may not be contacted in relation to the COVID-19 response, AMGC anticipates that this Register will continue to be of value as further requests from all levels of government and industry peers come to the fore.
