The First Principles Review, the 2016 Defence White Paper, Defence Integrated Investment Plan and the Defence Industry Capability Plan have all stated that the ADF must posses sovereign industry capabilities, and now, the task of ensuring it happens has fallen to the CDIC.
First Assistant Secretary of the Defence Industry Policy Division Kate Louis explains how the Centre for Defence Industry Capability (CDIC) plans to assess what capabilities the Australian Defence Force needs and then identify which of those capabilities must stay sovereign.
For the first time in Australian history, Defence has acknowledged the important role industry plays in developing and maintaining a fully functional, modern military.
First Assistant Secretary Louis identifies how defence industry SMEs can best place themselves for participation in large-scale Defence projects, engage with Defence and get involved in crucial, long-term sovereign capability projects. Listen in to find out how the CDIC can also assist your business to prepare for export.
