Building Resiliency and Seizing Opportunities in Advanced Manufacturing

Event Description and the Embassy of Australia, Washington DC have invited a panel of global leaders including Anthony PrattRobyn DenholmAndrew Liveris AO and Pamela Melroy to join Australia’s Ambassador to the United States, the Hon. Arthur Sinodinos AO, in a conversation about building resiliency and seizing opportunities in Advanced Manufacturing. The conversation will be hosted by Chairman Yasmin Allen and facilitated by CEO, Maria MacNamara.


Australia has important decisions to make. With almost a million Australians unemployed or underemployed as a result of the pandemic, we need to examine those sectors that can stimulate growth, unlock the talent and ingenuity of our people and create the variety of jobs needed to support the new economy in a Covid-19 constrained world.


The conversation will focus on critical issues including the need to transform established organisations and supply chains, particularly in a post-COVID-19 world.


We will also examine the importance of scaling of high growth enterprises globally, such as those producing autonomous vehicles and the need to stimulate the launch of new businesses, such as those unlocking the opportunities in space. We will discuss the data and technology that underpins the success of new economy organisations and the opportunities available for Australian entrepreneurs.


The Town Hall will be hosted on:

  • Tuesday 26 May 6pm  – 7.30pm (US EDT)
  • Wednesday 27 May 8am – 9.30am (AEST)

Video conference details will be issued to registered guests 24 hours prior to the event.
