Greens Deputy Leader Adam Bandt has welcomed the government's anti-dumping announcement today, but says the government must now work on local content rules for investments.
"These anti-dumping measures are long overdue", Mr Bandt said
"But these measures alone will not address the problems our manufacturers face. Unless we have strong rules on local content, manufacturing will continue to be squeezed," Adam Bandt said today.
"There needs to be action on local content rules for infrastructure and large investments, including in the mining and resources sector.
"Local content rules would set out requirements for use of local products and services, such as steel, to be used in construction."
