Incitec Pivot Limited Welcomes Jobs Boosting Manufacturing Strategy
Incitec Pivot Limited welcomes the commitment by the Federal Government to promote growth in high value jobs and investment in Australian manufacturing.
“This is recognition of the critical role manufacturers must play in the future of Australia’s economy and job creation across our regions and cities,” Incitec Pivot Limited MD & CEO Jeanne Johns said.
Ms Johns said it was especially encouraging to see the Federal Government commit to a competitive business environment as the first principle in both keeping Australians employed and growing the manufacturing sector.
“The Prime Minister has commented, ‘if you are not for gas you are not for heavy industry’ and we agree.
“The manufacturing strategy is underpinned by the Federal Government’s commitment to reset Australia’s east coast gas market.
“We welcome this reset which will help domestic manufacturers access internationally competitive gas prices and pave the way to protect and create Australian jobs in manufacturing,” Ms Johns said.
“We look forward to working constructively and cooperatively with the government, gas producers and others to ensure Australia’s policy settings support our manufacturing industry into the future,” Ms Johns said.
