About the event

The federal budget, delivered in early May, will give greater insights into spending priorities over the coming period.

The Defence Connect Budget Lunch will offer the opportunity to engage directly with the decision makers and thought leaders charged with delivering the government’s increased defence spending programs and shaping our national security infrastructure.

The lunch includes senior speakers from both sides of the aisle, offering each of them the opportunity to articulate or debate the finer points of the federal budget and contest it in live Q&A sessions.

Minister for Defence Industry, The Hon Melissa Price will be joined by opposition defence spokesperson Matt Keogh, Shadow Minister for Defence Industry.

These policymakers will also be joined by senior stakeholders from the defence sector to offer insights, analysis and interpretation of the budget during the lunch.
