On this episode of Defence Connect Insight, hosts Phil Tarrant and Steve Kuper are joined by the Hon. David Fawcett, senator for South Australia and chair of the Parliamentary Joint Standing Committee on Foreign Affairs, Defence and Trade.
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.
