Vik Bansal believes that Australia’s manufacturing sector will continue to thrive even after a pandemic. Vik Bansal is the CEO of Infrabuild, an Australian company focusing on providing technology and infrastructure for the mining industry. The company offers a range of services, including design, development, build and support of technologies used in mines worldwide.

Vik Bansal believes that the manufacturing sector in Australia is going to thrive even after a pandemic and that with world-class infrastructure, its prospects will be consolidated. The CEO further added that Australia’s status as an island nation has allowed people to develop with complete independence, and this factor has not only proven to be good for the country. Still, it has also proved advantageous for neighboring countries.
Vik Bansal is very optimistic about Australia’s future since its economy will be affected less than most other nations due to this factor. Since Australia will not depend on importing essentials, trade with other nations is expected to go on as usual post any pandemic.
The natural calamities Australia has experienced over the last few decades have meant that the country has evolved into one of the most disaster-proof economies in the world. In addition to this, the government is rich in natural resources and has a robust infrastructure.
Mr. Bansal believes that Australia’s manufacturing sector will be the backbone of its economy for many years to come. The CEO explained why he thought so by highlighting factors such as new technologies being innovated faster than ever before and that the manufacturing sector is the only way to thrive in today’s world.
According to Bansal, Australia has a competitive edge over other countries since it works with the most advanced technologies in the market; this fact sets an example for other countries.
