The Australian Defence Export Office (ADEO) and Defence export advocate David Johnston are encouraging interested defence industry businesses across the nation to get involved with a series of defence export training seminars.
The ADEO tailors its assistance to Australian companies on a case-by-case basis, and endeavours to provide a targeted level of support across all stages of a company’s export journey.
The ADEO works closely with an international network of defence attachés and Austrade business development managers in key markets (to date: the US, UK, Germany, Indonesia and Japan).
The office also collaborates with a range of Australian government agencies, including Austrade, Export Finance Australia, the Centre for Defence Industry Capability (CDIC), and state and territory governments, to provide support to Australian defence industry exports.
The Australian Defence export advocate, the ADEO, Defence SA, and the SA Department for Trade and Investment will host a 30-minute webinar briefing plus Q&A for South Australian defence industry.
The Australian Defence export advocate, the ADEO and Defence NSW will also host a 30-minute webinar briefing plus Q&A for NSW defence industry.
The webinars will provide:
- An update on government export support – what initiatives are currently in place to support you achieving export success, and what the ADEO is currently focused on delivering for defence industry;
- An update on international defence trade shows – what virtual or physical shows or trade missions are scheduled to go ahead for the remainder of 2020 and 2021, how to get involved in these activities, and what additional support the ADEO can provide to you; and
- Answers to questions related to defence industry exporting and overcoming export challenges.
The webinars are suitable for all SA and NSW companies, whether you are currently exporting, seeking to broaden your international markets, or considering exporting for the first time.
The Defence Export Controls Branch remains separate to the ADEO. The ADEO and the Defence Export Controls Branch work closely to ensure that Australia’s export controls requirements are met and awareness of potential export controls is understood by Australian defence industry.
