Public procurement localisation

The State of Victoria (sub-national level) announced that Victorian Government procurement for declared strategic projects greater than $A250m should be subject to local (Australian and New Zealand) content requirements. The measure will have a potential adverse impact over a broad range of sectors. Specifically in relation to passenger rail rolling stock, the measure will potentially adversely impact on previous and existing foriegn suppliers to the Victorian Government.
