[VIDEO] Carr, Dreyfus speak at 2011 Endeavour Awards

Innovation Minister Senator Kim Carr addresses 300 manufacturers at the 8th Annual Manufacturers’ Monthly Endeavour Awards ceremony in Melbourne on 25 May 2011.

"We stand with you today on the global challenge for climate change. More than ever, we need those skills and ideas of those 1 million Australian manufacturers," he said.

Carr’s support for Australian manufacturing is evident — however his support for a carbon tax is met with mixed reactions. Parliamentary Secretary for Climate Change, Mark Dreyfus, speaks after Carr.

Notice around 3:00 Opposition Leader Tony Abbott arrives, and everyone interrupts Dreyfus’s speech to clap!
