PODCAST: WA’s position in the defence supply chain, senator Linda Reynolds CSC

Linda Reynolds

Western Australia has attracted some negativity surrounding their potential for shipbuilding capability and their aptitude as a key participant in the defence supply chain.



In this episode of the Defence Connect Podcast, host Phil Tarrant is joined by senator Linda Reynolds CSC to discuss this criticism and WA’s relationship with South Australia. She will unpack how her history in defence has aided in achieving progress within the Senate and share her thoughts on WA’s potential and shaping the local SME sector.

Seeing the benefits of a strong defence industry to the WA economy, Reynolds will also discuss the ongoing potential of WA’s involvement in the space sector, and share her thoughts on the new inquiry being conducted to examine the transition out of the ADF.
