What does the manufacturing sector think about the PM’s gas-led recovery?
Brooke Corte, the host of Money News at 2GB, asked David Chuter about the PM’s gas-led recovery plan as well as the broader role of Australian manufacturing in the post-COVID world.
“The manufacturing sector has thrown its support behind the plan. Senior figures are saying the plan will give local operators access to gas that is up to three times cheaper which will allow them to compete with offshore competitors. Our decade long energy policy debacle has been the bane of the manufacturing sector. It’s desperate for cheap, reliable power delivered as quickly as humanly possible.
So, let’s talk tonight about Australia’s manufacturing sector in more detail. Not just about power though, but the role it’s going to play in Australia’s economic recovery. ”
