Victoria’s State Government has announced a future investment in manufacturing trains with 50 per cent of trains to be built in Australia.

This announcement has been praised by the Australian Industry Group (Ai Group) as it will benefit a substantial amount of work for local manufacturers.

Tim Piper, Ai Group Victoria branch head, said that this will be a boost not only to manufacturers, but to the workers who use and supply the industry as well.

 “A pipeline of work will engender confidence and encourage investment… We congratulate the Government on the support this will provide, especially to the train industry and its suppliers but also to the general economy,” he said.
