A nationwide Defence seminar series hosted by the Centre for Defence Industry Capability (CDIC), in support of the ‘Workforce behind the Defence Force’ campaign launched last year by Defence Industry Minister Christopher Pyne, will kick off next month.

The Introduction to the Defence Market seminar series is intended for businesses looking to learn about opportunities in the defence market.

The series is hosted by industry partners and the CDIC, which has been in operation since December 2016 and is seeking to build the capability and capacity of Australian industry to support the delivery and sustainment of defence capability. It also provides advice and initiatives for defence industry development, critical business skilling, and export and innovation facilitation

Minister Pyne said the seminars will open the door to businesses unsure of the defence market, as well discussing opportunities around the Defence Export Strategy.

"These seminars are a great opportunity for businesses who haven’t previously considered working in the defence market to learn what is involved and seize the tremendous opportunities provided by the government’s $200 billion investment in defence capability," Minister Pyne said.

"Businesses will also learn more about support provided through the Defence Export Strategy, as well as navigating our robust defence export control processes. The CDIC is helping businesses to navigate the complex defence market, which in turn is creating innovation, investment and new jobs."
