Buckle your seatbelts for an Australian automotive revival

If energy and commodity prices continue their current trajectory the Australian dollar will fall sharply, opening a new era for automotive manufacturing in Australia.

In Australia political correctness has taken on a whole new meaning – it is now the height of political correctness to say that our automotive manufacturing and design industry has no future. The events of the last few months show that, once again, political correctness looks like being wrong and the automotive industry has a chance of becoming an important lynch pin in the national economy.

I do not claim to be clever enough to make a definitive forecast but let me take you through a series of events which look to be ahead for Australia. If they occur, and I think they will, it would transform the outlook for the motor industry.
