Editor’s note: The Minister for Industry recalled the war effort of Australian manufacturers in her address to the Press Club this week. One of the markers the Government has set for the road to recovery is to secure Australia’s economic sovereignty by building a stronger local manufacturing sector. Co-operatives and mutuals have a proven track record of providing essential goods and services in times of crisis. The BCCM has briefed the Minister and her department on the opportunities for co-operatives and mutuals for in-country, value added economic activity. More on that soon in our road to recovery plan. – Melina.
