Cameron Moore to chair Parliamentary Inquiry into Manufacturing

The Parliamentary Inquiry into Manufacturing Committee is pleased to announce that Cameron Moore will join the Committee as its independent chair.

The Parliamentary Inquiry into Manufacturing was launched by the Labour, Green, New Zealand First and Mana parties to address the alarming decline in manufacturing, which has seen the industry shed 40,000 jobs and manufactured exports fall by over 12% over the past four years.

Cameron Moore is a current Executive Member and past President of the New Zealand Manufacturers and Exporters Association. Working in Australia and New Zealand, he has extensive experience as a director and board chair for large manufacturing and exporting companies as well as public agencies. His work has been particularly focused on long-term strategic planning and innovation. Mr Moore’s wealth of experience in manufacturing and exporting, and the insights he will provide make him a valuable addition to the Committee.

“The decline in manufacturing needs to be taken seriously. I welcome the parties’ commitment to developing better policies for manufacturing and I look forward to working with them on the Parliamentary Inquiry into Manufacturing,” said Mr Moore.

The Parliamentary Inquiry into Manufacturing is currently accepting submissions from the public and plans to commence hearings around New Zealand in December. The Committee plans to publish its report in 2013. Submissions can be made to manufacturinginquiry@parliament.govt.nz or via the website: www.manufacturinginquiry.org.nz
