PODCAST: Australian defence as a global player, Karen Stanton, HTA Group

Karen Stanton, HTA Group

Having recently returned from Washington after attending the G’Day USA gala Defence dialogue, Karen Stanton, director of corporate and strategy at HTA Group, joins host Phil Tarrant to discuss the transformation of the Australian defence industry.

She will share outcomes from G’Day USA, including why she considers it to be such an important event and look at the exceptional representation of SMEs in this year’s gala. Looking at discussions that took place, she will cover support that is being offered to SMEs and how they can get the best out of the CDIC.

Karen will discuss the release of the Defence Industrial Capability Plan, what that means for Australians involved in the defence industry, and also discuss how international competition has impacted the demise and transformation of manufacturing in Australia over the past two decades.
