Holden to cease manufacturing operations in Australia by 2017 – ABC News (Australian Broadcasting Corporation)

Holden was GM’s Chevy in Australia and the remarks by their PM show they don’t, in fact,  have a clue or a plan… This will mean that Toyota will probably also leave and all medium and small suppliers will be shut down in a few years – will add up to 10,000 or more people out of good paying jobs and may lead to other industries deciding they can shift to exporting to Australia or just abandon the market. All because leadership at GM and in Aussie government’s are no longer up to their jobs!

Prime Minister Tony Abbott says it is \”dark day\” for manufacturing in Australia.

\”This is a dark day but there will be better days ahead,\” he told Parliament upon his return from South Africa, where he attended the Nelson Mandela memorial service.

\”It is my determination … to work with the people of Australia to ensure that the strengths of our society continue to be built on.\”
