Industry association acknowledges what can be achieved when industry issues are met with a receptive ear.

The Industry Participation Advocate and Tony Dixon, CEO of Australian Steel Institute, have worked closely together to meet the challenge of finding ways to account for the flow-on benefits from the local steel supply chain in government projects.  The Australian steel industry has faced a number of challenges as cheaper, lower quality imported product has flooded the Australian market and Mr Dixon has acknowledged the benefits of working with the IPA where these concerns were “met with a receptive ear” to promote the use of local product in government projects for the long term success of the industry.
