The COVID-19 crisis has been a wake-up call for Australia and the world.

There will be many lessons learned from this pandemic however the sight of pallets of important medical and personal protective equipment being shipped back to China by companies with links to the Chinese Communist Party at the time of medical crisis may prove to be the most important lesson.

Australia is a resource rich country however the previous few decades have seen our manufacturing base placed under great pressure.

Bringing manufacturing back to our great nation is not just about jobs, it is about protecting our sovereign interests.

It is not going to be easy, but together we must become more self-reliant and we must succeed.

This is why I have started an online campaign to call for the return of manufacturing in South Australia and our great nation.

Thank you for your support on this issue.

Yours sincerely,

Alex Antic
Liberal Senator for South Australia



Dear Alex,


Australia is a country with a proud history of manufacturing.


We can no longer be reliant upon authoritarian regimes like the Chinese Communist Party.


When you speak about returning manufacturing to South Australia in the Australian Parliament, you can count on my support.
