The directory also provides information on defence related capabilities at WA universities and vocational training providers. The minister encouraged the business representatives to review the directory for opportunities for collaboration or partnerships with WA industry, universities and vocational training providers.

The Singaporean companies were also invited to the Indo-Pacific Defence Conference in Perth on 30 October. The inaugural conference will build on WA's strategic economic and locational links, and promote its defence industry sector and its potential for a greater contribution to national and regional defence and security matters.

"Singapore’s defence supply sector is recognised as being a global leader. The government’s annual defence spend, worth more than $13 billion, has a strong emphasis on advanced technology, including remotely operated equipment and robotics," Minister Papalia said. 

The minister also met with Dr Mohamad Maliki bin Osman, Minister of State for Defence, to discuss opportunities for strengthening collaboration between Singapore and Western Australia in defence science and technology.
