PODCAST: The challenges and opportunities facing the Australian defence sector, Dr Malcolm Davis, Australian Strategic Policy Institute

Dr. Malcolm Davis, Australian Strategic Policy Institute

In this special episode of the Defence Connect Podcast recorded live on-site at the Avalon International Airshow and Defence Exposition, host Phil Tarrant is joined by the senior analyst of defence strategy and capability at the Australian Strategic Policy Institute, Dr Malcolm Davis, and Defence Connect journalist Steve Kuper to discuss some of the challenges facing the Australian defence landscape.

Dr Davis will share his thoughts on Australia’s position in the global defence environment, discussing the likelihood of Australia being at direct threat and how Australian involvement could look in future conflicts. He will address the gap that he believes has been created with the retirement of the F-111 and will also expand his take on the attitudes of defence leaders towards long range strike capability.

Finally, they will address the 2016 Defence White Paper and its relevance in the current defence climate, the push to keep Australian training and knowledge within Australia, and why communication with the US defence sector is paramount to our success.

Enjoy the podcast,
