BIC IR Seminar and Technical Suppliers Summit (Canberra) February 28

On Tuesday February 28, 2017 the Technical Summit was held at the Hotel Realm in Canberra

Attendees were able to actively participate in the technical agenda that the BIC is pursuing for Industry.

On the same day APTIA conducted its biannual National Industrial Relations Seminar at the Kurrajong Hotel in Canberra.

The theme was: "Industrial Relations - Where to now?" This was very relevant now that we have seen the cross bench Senators willing to pass the Government's legislation even if it is a negotiated outcome.

Both the National IR Seminar and Technical Summit were followed by BIC's National Industry Dinner in Canberra.
