The Manufacturing Integration Stream will support projects that integrate Australian businesses into domestic and international value chains. It should propel their goods and services into new markets and foster Australia’s reputation as a modern manufacturing leader.
It will encourage and facilitate linkages between local businesses and domestic and international firms, increasing scale, supply capacity, and the ability to innovate. It will also facilitate the adoption of product standards and greater sharing and transfer of knowledge.
The objectives of the Manufacturing Integration Stream include:
- support Australian manufacturing businesses and entrepreneurs to participate in local and global value chains
- encourage manufacturers to adopt new technologies to support entry into new markets with innovative solutions to build scale and capability
- support Australian manufacturers to overcome barriers that are preventing them from identifying and accessing new value chains (as outlined in the relevant priority road map)
- create new jobs in the manufacturing sector, by integrating into new local and global value chains
