    Registration is now open for our Manufacturing & Innovation in Western Sydney Business Leader Luncheon, which is proudly presented in partnership with Southern Strength. 

    Whilst it’s widely suggested that manufacturing is in decline, it currently contributes over 16% to the GRP of Western Sydney, making it the largest industry sector in the region and the 2nd largest employer.

    In order to secure the long-term economic success of Western Sydney it is vital that this sector remain competitive both domestically and internationally. It has become clear that manufacturing in Western Sydney can no longer compete on price.

    To remain competitive we must innovate. A recent report by the Australia Institute states “There is more economic space than at any time in recent years to expand investment, production, and employment in value-added manufacturing.”

    In a bid to foster this much needed innovation the Federal Government is investing $238 million over four years in six Industry Growth Centres:

    • Advanced Manufacturing
    • Cyber Security
    • Food and Agribusiness
    • Medical Technologies and Pharmaceuticals
    • Mining Equipment
    • Technology and Services Oil
    • Gas and Energy Resources

    We will take a look at how manufacturing in Western Sydney is tracking and how effective the current strategies are in ensuring Western Sydney remains competitive. We will also hear from a successful manufacturer on what it takes to succeed.

    $5.00 from every ticket sold at this event goes to the WSBC Charity Partner Program, raising funds for our 7 Charity Partners: Children's Medical Research Institute, Ingham Institute of Applied Medical Research, Northcott Disability Services, Parramatta Mission, Ronald McDonald House (Westmead), The Salvation Army and Westmead Medical Research Foundation
