Joining host Phil Tarrant at Defence Connects mobile podcast studio at the 2019 Pacific Maritime Exhibition, Secretary of the Department of Defence, Greg Moriarty, discusses the next-stage of Australias record $200 billion investment in defence capability and the continuing development of a globally competitive and sustainable defence industrial base.

As part of this conversation, Secretary Moriarty discusses how his priorities have evolved since taking the position in 2017 and the impact his previous experience working on international security issues has had on helping to ensure that the 2016 Defence White Paper Capability Plan and Integrated Investment Plan is working for Defence and industry. 

Secretary Moriarty also discusses the important role Australian industry will play in the acquisition of key ADF capabilities, ranging from the Armys LAND 400 and LAND 8112 programs, through to the continued acquisition of the Royal Australian Air Forces F-35 Joint Strike Fighter capabilities and the role Australian industry, both big and small, plays in supporting the capability delivery. 

Shifting to the $90 billion Naval Shipbuilding Program, Secretary Moriarty will speak to the growing levels of collaboration between the defence primes and Australian SMEs and the room for continued growth and development within those relationships, and growing Australian industry content in these major projects. 

Building on this, Secretary Moriarty discusses the role the Department of Defence and Capability Acquisition and Sustainment Group (CASG) play in supporting industry collaboration and the development at the domestic level – Secretary Moriarty also briefly discusses the leavers Defence has to support greater cross pollination and industry collaboration.

Finally, Secretary Moriarty will combine the importance of these individual components as the nation seeks to safely navigate the increasing great power competition in the Indo-Pacific in an integrated, 'joint force' and agile manner.
