Manufacturing Leaders Group

The Manufacturing Leaders Group (MLG) provides strategic advice on manufacturing to the Government. Membership of the MLG was announced by the Minister for Industry and Innovation on 6 December 2012, and is drawn from business, unions and the research and development community. At its first meeting, the MLG agreed on the following priorities and established a Technical Working Group to progress these:

  • Improving the public perceptions of Australian manufacturing to attract and retain skilled workers and investment and to supply high-value products and services globally.
  • Improving the adoption of a high performance workplace culture by more Australian manufacturing SMEs to help them innovate, grow and compete globally.
  • Promoting and enhancing linkages between multinational corporations and high performing Australian manufacturing SMEs to help them grow into global mid-sized firms.
  • Building a culture of innovation and collaboration through Industry Innovation Precincts.
  • Encouraging the adoption of design thinking by more Australian manufacturing SMEs to help them innovate, grow and compete globally.
  • Examining the need for additional measures for addressing short term adjustment pressures and lifting demand for Australian made goods.
  • Establishing leadership dialogues in specific sectors facing critical pressures and structural change.

Information on the role, membership and operational arrangements is provided in the Group's Framework.
