Fawcett delves into the inquiry he is currently leading into the strategic implications of COVID-19, how Australia is currently faring in terms of national sovereignty, and his committee’s sentiment towards the nation’s potential to develop its local supply chain.

He explains how COVID-19 has accelerated conversations around national resilience, the strategic implications of the pandemic in relation to human rights, and the tangible action expected to come out of this inquiry.
