Defying expectations, industry is booming

Victorian Government’s $120 million investment in manufacturing has created more than 5000 jobs for Victorians and is driving $1.4 billion in private investment from manufacturers.

Manufacturing in Victoria continues to go from strength-to-strength with the Australian Industry Group’s Manufacturing Index revealing the state has recorded 15 months of consecutive growth, the longest run since 2001.
