Today I hosted a Bennelong Business and Research Briefing with Senator the Hon Kim Carr, Minister for Innovation, Industry, Science and Research at Eden Gardens, North Ryde.
Senator Kim Carr discussed how the Gillard Labor Government is right behind the rapidly developing innovation corridor centred on Bennelong. The Senator briefed local industry, research and small business leaders and took questions on government policies, including the new R & D Tax Credit which the Gillard Labor Government will work tirelessly to get through the Senate.
“Federal Labor recognises the importance of this region as an engine for creating new businesses, new wealth, and new jobs,” Senator Carr said.
“The corridor has benefited from significant new investments under Labor, including the establishment of an Enterprise Connect centre at North Ryde and a record over $82 million in investment into Macquarie University”.
