Review 2 -- National Manufacturing Week (NMW) 2009
Melbourne, with a population of 3.21 million is divided by the Yarra River along which is a magnificent sight. The culture of Melbourne was greatly enriched by flocks of immigrants after the World War Two. Futurism architectures and Classicalism architectures display a striking contrast around the Federation Square, a new settlement for residents. Melbournians are born optimists. They seem to get used to the changeable weather, and will comfort the tourists, “It doesn’t matter if you are not accustomed to the weather here. It will be fine later.”
On the second and third days of the National Manufacturing Week (NMW) 2009, the number of visitors like the changeable weather of Melbourne was increasing as the exhibitors were waiting. The “Manufacturing Outlook” panel discussion presided by Mr. John Blakemore, National President, Manufcturing Society of Australia, was held at the exhibition scene and lasted for two hours. The theme of the panel was about how Australian manufacturing industry keeps its competitive edge. The panelists held that Australian manufacturing industry should embrace globalization, but only by focusing on its own competitive advantage, principally on its intellectual capital rather than try to compete with China and India in mass production. They also believe that Australia has become world leaders in innovative ability and added value and must constantly evolve to stay one step ahead.
At the panel discussion scene
There were many buyers coming to our booth to get China Fastener Directory (CFD) during these two days including some professional fasteners such as Coventry Fasteners, AUSTRALIAN FASTENERS, United Fasteners and the like. As to lots of fastener end users whose purchase orders were less, they should figure out how to get these orders and make them profitable, which will be also a new challenge to Chinese fastener export enterprises.
Mainland China Group
There were around 30 enterprises coming to this exhibition, among which were some renowned companies in China such as Shanghai Prime Machinery Co.,Ltd.,Kunshan Chenghe Standard Component Co.,Ltd, and Chengdu Duolin Electric Co., Ltd. After talking with them, we knew that they were also greatly influenced by the financial crisis and anti-dumping, and hoped to open up new markets to adapt to the development of their companies. Here were our interviews of these three companies.
