CEO UPDATE

Thank you to the over 750 industry stakeholders who provided feedback on the 2018 IRC Key Findings discussion papers. Your contribution has been invaluable. IRCs are using this industry intelligence to develop the IRC Skills Forecasts and Proposed Schedules of Work they will submit to the Australian Industry and Skills Committee (AISC) on 30 April. 
 
This month I was pleased to attend the Australian Logistics Council (ALC) Forum 2018 which focused on the issues raised in the Draft Report on National Freight and Supply Chain Priorities. Discussions helped to clarify these priorities and expectations for the types of infrastructure investment and policy reform required to enhance national supply chain efficiency and safety.
