Minister for Industry Christian Porter says the manufacturing sector “cannot cope with lockdowns forever”.

In the March quarter, manufacturing profits rose by 6.8 per cent, an achievement Mr Porter said was a “remarkable result”.

“Resilience of the manufacturing sector as a whole is something throughout COVID-19 we can be proud of as Australians.

However, Mr Porter emphasised manufacturers need a “clear, consistent and secure known path out of lockdowns”.
