LET'S MAKE AN AUSTRALIA THAT IS AUSTRALIA MADE

When a Chinese food stall can hammer the world economy, globalisation has gone too far.
The sugar hits of free trade have gutted our heavy industry, undermined our supply chains and eroded our food, water and national security.
COVID-19 has shown us up. It’s revealed we’ve chased the cheapest instead of the best. When our economy’s made in China, our national interest is subject to the interests of another nation we can’t control.
We need Australian-made free trade. That’s the lesson of coronavirus.
That means backing in our manufacturing sector. It means strengthening the rules around foreign investment. It means diversifying what we’re making and who we’re selling it to, so no country controls our fate but us.
Change is possible
We’ve got the skills, the land, the tech and the talent. We just need leaders with the vision to make it happen.
Join our group of like-minded Australians — and let’s get this going.
What we make, we control
If we can’t find the health equipment we need at short notice, we’re vulnerable.
We’ve got to start making the things we need, right here — where we need them.
Free trade has failed us
Globalisation has stripped us of jobs making the things we need here.
Now, what we need, we’ve got to buy. The countries with the money set the price we pay for safety.
Industry is gutted
We’ve rushed to withdraw support for critical industries that have enormous benefits to the national economy.
While our competitiors back theirs, we fold ours — because they were too expensive to keep. Now, we’re paying the true price.
Join the resistance
As our economy rebuilds, now’s the time to ask:
COVID-19 represents a fork in the road. We either keep going the way we’re going, where the lowest cost represents the greatest value, or we recognise that it makes more sense to be investing in ourselves than investing in our competitors.
We back our industry. We restore our competitive advantages.
We put the brakes on foreign purchases of our critical assets.
We build an Australia that’s truly Australian-made.
