The government of Australia has earmarked Au$1 million to promote and endorse the high quality of locally designed and produced products to key overseas markets. The new funding is part of the government’s ongoing efforts to secure Australia’s future as a globally recognised, high-quality, sustainable and innovative manufacturing nation.

The grant will be used to support the design and development of an Australian fashion certification trademark, Australia’s Department of Industry, Science, Energy and Resources (DISER) said in a media release.

The funding will be provided to the Australian Fashion Council (AFC), the leading organisation for the textile and fashion industry of the country.

The government is securing Australia’s recovery by investing more than Au$475 million in the 2021-22 budget to drive industry growth and scientific development, helping to create high paying, sustainable jobs for Australian workers, the release said.
