Motor Vehicle Technology-Progress and Harmony -A Practical Approach-Keynote Address 830856
The paper provides an overview of the history of the Australian automotive industry with observations covering the effects of progress on both the industry and the Australian public. Over the years, Government bodies and consumer protection agencies have had a significant influence on shaping the industry. However recent years have seen strong trends developing, relating to methods of manufacturing and the use of R & D, which will impact on the Australian car of tomorrow. The conclusion is drawn that there is a clear direction for Australia to review its approach to both R & D and manufacture with co-operation and harmony being keys to the future of the industry.
