I could get "alvey" reels made overseas, pay the workers double the standard and still sell them in Australia for 1/10 of alveys price. Keeping the quality the same.
You are right in that respect so whats the answer shouldn't the Government and Preceding Governments be protecting Australian manufacturers from overseas competitors?
In the case of fishing Reels it's probably not as critical as steel industries or the auto industry. Cannot think of any other Australian reel manufacturer either.
