    In China, Mr Carroll met with key players in the food and fibre, pharmaceutical, professional services and digital technology sectors, including the Commercial Aircraft Corporation of China (COMAC).

    COMAC, one of China’s biggest aerospace manufacturers, is partnering with the Monash Centre for Additive Manufacturing for testing and developing new metal alloys in aircraft. The visit was a chance to explore the possibilities of further collaborations in aerospace manufacturing, research and design.

    In the United States, Mr Carroll met with senior executives from Ford at its global headquarters, and toured General Motors’ technical centre in Detroit. Both companies have a strong workforce in Victoria, employing more than 2,000 people.

    Mr Carroll also met with Tesla, a global leader in the design and mass production of electric vehicles and innovative battery technology, and executives from Stanford University and Facebook.

    Victoria’s manufacturing sector is made up of more than 13,000 businesses, employing more than 286,000 people, and contributes $27.7 billion to the state economy.

    “We’re forging connections with major players in China and the United States to help create more jobs for Victorians, drive new collaborations, investment and trade opportunities for our state,” Mr Carroll said.
