Defence Industry Minister Melissa Price said, "In the UK, I will support the largest contingent of Australian defence industry companies to attend the Defence and Security Equipment International tradeshow with a focus on how small businesses can benefit from defence partnerships."

DSEI is one of 15 tradeshows and trade missions that the Australian government’s Defence Export Office will support over the next 12 months.

With a range of opportunities for networking, a platform for business, access to relevant content and live-action demonstrations, the DSEI community can innovate, share knowledge, discover and experience the latest capabilities across the aerospace (including space), land, naval, security and joint domains.

"While in London, I will address the Defence Industry and Innovation Day at Australia House and outline my focus on supporting our small businesses to grow stronger through new export opportunities," Minister Price added. 

France will figure as a key component of the minister's advocacy agenda, with Minister Price stating, "In France, I will meet the workforce from Defence and Naval Group who are working together in Cherbourg to deliver Australia’s Future Submarine Program."

"The Morrison government will deliver thousands of jobs and opportunities for Australian small businesses in the Future Submarine Program. I look forward to deepening Australia’s defence ties with the UK and France, promoting Australia’s defence industry and small businesses and exploring opportunities to strengthen Australia’s defence industrial base," Minister Price said.

DSEI 2019 will see 1,600 exhibitors and 35,000 attendees from over 50 countries.
