Tonsley offers great potential for innovation and industry collaboration, bringing together complementary businesses with leading academic institutions. It represents a new future.
Government has a legitimate role in precinct and industry cluster development in support of industrial transformation and economic growth:
Government is providing an alternate vision for the decline of traditional manufacturing by providing a tangible demonstration of an operating environment that will support a sustainable future for manufacturing in South Australia.
Government also has a role in bridging ‘soft infrastructure’ gaps such as through supporting industry cluster development, creating opportunities for entrepreneurial activity and commercialisation support.
Long-term commitment to a clearly articulated vision utilising Government’s ‘patient capital’ inspires confidence and provides certainty for investors.
This is different to creating an ‘industry park’ and is more than simply co-locating businesses together in the case of industry cluster development. It is an integration of partners by design to support innovation, value creation and competitiveness.
Tonsley sits within the South Australia’s development objective of maximising opportunities while minimising risks.
South Australia has unprecedented opportunities for investment.
The South Australian Government pursues a progressive partnership approach for investors in Tonsley.
