The Australian Manufacturing Week (AMW2023) is kicking off today at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre. Manufacturers’ Monthly will attend to discover more throughout the week.
The Welcome to Country and the inauguration ceremony took place at the Future Solutions Stage as the first event for the show.
AMTIL is honoured to have Tony Garvey, a celebrated Elder from the local Wurundjeri mob invite them to proceed, with a Welcome to Country for AMW 2023. Ben Carroll MP, Victorian minister for industry and innovation, and minister for manufacturing sovereignty then officially opened the show.
“When manufacturing minds and hearts come together, we can do anything,” Carroll said.
“I look forward to tonight’s budget announcement,” he added. “I’ve had several meetings with the federal minister for industry and science Ed Husic and am excited about the support manufacturing will receive.”
