PM Tony Abbott will meet the premiers of Victoria and South Australia today in the wake of Holden's decision to end its Australian manufacturing operations.
Australia's entire car-making industry and tens of thousands of jobs have been thrown into doubt by Holden's decision to close down by the end of 2017.
Mr Abbott says a package of measures will be announced soon to help the areas affected by Holden's closures.
SA Premier Jay Weatherill has described Holden's decision as a "body blow" to his state, while Victoria's Dennis Napthine says the Government needs to make sure Japanese car giant Toyota does not close its Australian operations.
The Australian Industry Group says Holden's closure should be a wake-up call for the business sector and shows local businesses need to do more to compete globally.
