The Coalition will deliver the first budget surplus in a decade.

Quote" November 2017 marked the 14th month in a row that the manufacturing sector held a score above 50 on the Ai Group Performance of Manufacturing Index. Any figure above 50 indicates the industry is experiencing success, while the amount above it is from 50 represents its rate of growth, according to Business Insider."End Quote

2019 Update

PURE SPIN -  A.K.A. LIE 

But while the Treasurer has trumpeted that the Budget is "back in the black" The Coalition has only forecast a surplus and has yet to deliver one.

There had been speculation the Government would attempt to deliver a surplus for the current financial year, but that has failed to eventuate.

The 2018-19 financial year is projected to end with a $4.2 billion deficit.

The Budget forecasts surpluses in each year over the forward estimates, reaching as high as $17.8 billion in 2021-22.

1 VOTER COMMENT4:  We are selling off our minerals instead of utilizing them in our own manufacturing industries. The sale of our gas and coal off-shore is raising the prices of these resources for Australian consumers, these are not renewable resources. What do we do when we run out? The reliance on exporting minerals places huge wealth in the hands of few, is primarily located in the states with smaller populations and has a huge impact on the environment. 

 

Mining and mineral exports are primarily responsible for the growth in the Australian economy. What happens if China suddenly stops purchasing our minerals!

1 VOTER COMMENT 5 - SO IS MANUFACTURING UP OR DOWN?

My research shows wildly differing opinions on manufacturing growth or otherwise in Australia, so it’s difficult to know the truth. Drawing on personal observation I have seen vehicles,clothing, shoes, paper products, electrical and whitegoods manufacturing in Australia almost entirely gone. The internet international sales have deprived Australia of G.S.T. income and decimated shopping centres and consequently retail sales jobs.  

Finding succinct ratified  2018-19  government Data on this topic has proven difficult so I am submitting here data that covers the period the Coalition has been in government to indicate a general trend.
