A Future Made in Australia – National Reconstruction Fund (NRF)

The NRF consists of $15.0 billion to be invested over 7 years from 2023-24, to be directed towards targeted co-investments in projects which ‘support value-adding production, drive productivity and strengthen supply chain resilience.’ Key industries for investment include manufacturing, advanced manufacturing, mining (excluding coal), and infrastructure. The NRF forms the main part of the Government’s manufacturing investment priorities in the Budget, however specific details surrounding the NRF are not included. Further legislation to support the NRF is expected to be introduced later in 2022.
