Australia punching above our weight is a national pastime
Bill Woods is joined by Steve Eagle, director at How to Buy Australian Made, who proudly acknowledges that Australia is head and shoulders above other countries in a bunch of areas:
1. With only 0.33% of the total world population, we’re 55th in terms of population size yet we’re the 13th largest economy.
2. Australia ranked number one at the 2022 Commonwealth Games with 67 gold medals, 10 more than England, the host of the games.
3. When it comes to primary production, Australia is globally recognised as best in class for meat, sugar, dairy produce, and fruit, and of course mining.
4. In manufacturing, Australia is a world leader in solar technology – Adelaide solar panel manufacturer Tindo, cutting edge medical research – vaccine development at University of Melbourne and Griffith University in Brisbane, and producing innovative, eco-friendly, and sustainable products.
“We need to believe and take pride in our achievements, and one way to do that is to support and always choose Australian-made”, says Mr Eagle.
