Supporting local industry

The government must instruct all government-owned entities to select Australian produced goods and services over foreign produced goods, where they are price competitive and compliant with our trade treaties.

The government and government-owned entities should also be allowed to accept gifts of goods and services from Australian companies for use in their businesses so that they can showcase the goods and services of Australian companies.

Austrade should be directed to focus more attention on supporting Australian exports and not simply finding foreign companies to acquire Australian businesses.
