Economic Uplift Survey

Australia’s driverless vehicle industry says it’s emerging from the COVID-19 crisis with growing business confidence to create more jobs and invest more money. An economic uplift survey conducted by the Australia and New Zealand Driverless Vehicle Initiative (ADVI) has found that 84% of businesses surveyed within the industry expected to hire more workers, or keep the same levels of employment post COVID-19. This was despite 87% of industry respondents saying they had been adversely affected by COVID-19 during 2020.
