The Defence Policy for Industry Participation – What does this mean for me and my business?

The Australian Industry & Defence Network Queensland (AIDN QLD) invite you to attend this industry breakfast on the 31st of May 2019 at Rydges Southbank Townsville.

The keynote speaker, Dr. Sheridan Kearnan (First Assistant Secretary Defence Industry Policy), will discuss the Defence Policy for Industry Participation (DPIP) and how the policy is designed to make it easier for Australian companies to compete for work in the Defence sector.

The Defence Policy for Industry Participation (DPIP) provides a framework for maximising Australian and local industry involvement across Defence materiel and non-materiel Defence procurement of $4 million and above ($7.5 million for construction services). The DPIP builds upon the Australian Industry Capability Program to maximise the opportunities for Australian industry participation at a national and local level in order to meet Australia’s Defence capability requirements.

This seminar is RUSI Queensland's blue-ribbon event for 2019. Constant examination of the Australia-Indonesia bilateral relationship is required to understand the dynamic shifts in the political, diplomatic and social foundations of these two close neighbours.  This year provides a special opportunity to recalibrate the strengths and weaknesses in this key regional relationship. Both countries will have completed national elections with political leaders and their parties embarking on their next terms of office in an increasingly uncertain Indo-Pacific domain. How will the relationship evolve? What are these key players thinking about each other? What are the emergent threats that might forge a deeper association between Canberra and Jakarta, or see a split develop along nationalistic, religious or security lines? And what are some of the 'black swan' events that could surprise and challenge both nations and the region?  Introduced by the Australian Minister for Foreign Affairs (tbc), the impressive list of international and Australian speakers will address these issues and more over the course of this day-long seminar. Speakers, including senior policy advisors, think tank researchers and academics will prime discussions on topics including strategic calculus, political Islam, regional security threats, climate change, pandemic diseases and natural disasters. These speakers will then be joined by other experts for panel discussions designed to maximise audience participation and exposure to these contemporary 'big ideas' in the Australia-Indonesia relationship. Specific topics will necessarily be considered in the context of China's rise and the West's response. Join Mr Peter Jennings (Director ASPI), Ibu Shafiah Muhibat (CSIS Jakarta), Prof Peter Leahy (National Security Institute), Prof Cordia Chu (Centre for Environment and Population Health), Prof Tim Lindsey (Director of the Centre for Indonesian Law, Islam and Society) and Dr Greta Nabbs-Keller (Centre for Policy Futures) for a master class in international relations between Australia and the largest national Muslim population in the world -- Indonesia.
