The Treasurer has asked the QPC to undertake an inquiry into Queensland’s manufacturing sector, including a review of reshoring initiatives. The inquiry will identify policy options to improve the productivity and competitiveness of the manufacturing sector in Queensland.
The inquiry will examine opportunities to:
- build on existing competitive advantages and advanced manufacturing niches
- take advantage of emerging opportunities
- address challenges, especially for businesses and workers less able to adapt and reposition themselves in a changing market.
