Introduction to the Defence Market seminar series launched

A new Australia-wide ‘Introduction to the Defence Market’ seminar series will be delivered by the Centre for Defence Industry Capability (CDIC) in partnership with defence industry stakeholders.

The seminar series supports the Commonwealth Government’s information campaign ‘The Workforce behind the Defence Force’, and is intended for businesses that would like to learn about opportunities in the defence market.

The seminars will cover what is involved in working in the defence market and the opportunities provided by the Commonwealth Government’s $200 billion investment in defence capability, as well as information about support provided through the Defence Export Strategy, and navigating Australia’s robust defence export control processes.

‘Introduction to the Defence Market’ seminars will be held in Melbourne on 17 April 2018 and Geelong on 19 April 2018. Businesses interested in attending can register at: www.business.gov.au/cdic
