Future Made in Australia

Publication type


The Future Made in Australia agenda is targeted to address the major structural and strategic challenges that the Australian economy faces.

Government support is needed to crowd-in the necessary private investment to scale up priority industries that will help the Australian economy navigate and prosper through these challenges.

This paper outlines the National Interest Framework that will guide how the Government will identify priority industries and how policy support will be designed to support the Government’s objectives through its Future Made in Australia agenda. Priority industries under the Future Made in Australia agenda fall into one of two streams:

  • the Net Zero Transformation Stream, which includes industries where Australia will have a comparative advantage as the global economy transitions to net zero
  • the Economic Resilience and Security Stream, which includes industries where some level of domestic capability is necessary to deliver economic resilience and security.
