Our motor vehicle industry continues to be one in transition, and yet remains a vital and integral part of the national economy. This is reflected in our record year of sales in 2015.

Tough decisions have been made and a fresh path mapped out which, if unencumbered by government intervention, will continue to deliver world-class products and outstanding value for the Australian consumer.

This directional shift has created more policy changes for our industry.

We experienced the first impacts of those changes during 2015 when, in the face of strong evidence to the contrary, a proposal was developed within government which exposed our industry to the threat of parallel imports.
