NSW defence industry on show in the US
NSW Minister for Primary Industries Niall Blair

NSW's defence companies and capabilities have been promoted as part of the annual G'day USA program in the US capital.

The US-Australian Dialogue, organised by the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, is a key annual program of events to promote Australian capabilities in the US, bringing together industry leaders and influencers across government, business, tourism, academia and the arts.

Various NSW companies, including Thales Australia, Thomas Global Systems, Varley Group, BecTech Inc, Jacobs Aerospace & Technology, Integra Packaging and Dexata, are in attendance hoping to grow the industry and promote jobs.

Hunter-based advanced engineering and manufacturing company Varley Group recently announced their $10 million partnership with US defence avionics company Coherent Technical Services Inc at the 2017 Avalon Airshow. 

"Under the NSW government’s Defence and Industry Strategy, we’re growing our defence and aerospace industries to promote jobs, investment and innovation," NSW Minister for Primary Industries Niall Blair said.

"This includes targeting overseas opportunities for NSW companies to win more work in defence markets like the United States.

"This event will be a prime opportunity to promote the NSW defence industry to the United States."

CEO of Thomas Global Systems Angus Hutchinson will lead a session on developing partnerships between defence and industry in global supply chains, and NSW defence advocate Air Marshal (Ret'd) John Harvey will lead a Team Defence Australia (TDA) delegation to promote the export of Australian defence industry products and services.
