Developing Australia’s Defence Industry Base Report

Developing Australia’s Defence Industry Base Report - Macquarie Government

Today at the National Press Club the Sovereign Australian Prime Alliance (SAPA) launched a new report that sets out the pathway for creating Australian Headquartered businesses and highly skilled jobs in shipbuilding, cyber defence, space, missiles, and munitions that are so important to supporting the Australians who dedicate their lives to serving our country in Defence and national security.

We are proud to be part of this new in depth report launched by fellow Australian business builder, NIOA, and written by ex-ASPI Chief, Peter Jennings, Michael Shoebridge, and Marcus Hellyer.

Great to be working on this with Australians who have built their own businesses from humble beginnings and give opportunities to their Australian suppliers – NIOA, AUSTAL and Gilmour Space Technologies.

The time has come for our Government to implement their Buy Australian First election policy in industries which matter most for our ability to defend our country and contribute to our alliances.
