Businesses invited to tap into Defence industry

Northern based Government Senator Ian Macdonald has welcomed the upcoming ‘Introduction to the Defence Market’ seminar as a great way for local business operators to tap into defence industries.

 Senator Macdonald said the Centre for Defence Industry Capability (CDIC) will deliver the initiative in Townsville.

 “This seminar will provide valuable information to assist aspiring defence industry businesses to assess the market and better understand how they pursue opportunities,” Senator Macdonald said.

 “Townsville is a Garrison City and the Australian defence industry is front and centre of the Government’s vision and agenda for jobs growth in our region.

 “By maximising the local opportunities, we’re ensuring local businesses get a slice of the Australian government’s historic $200 billion renewal of defence capability,” Senator Macdonald said.

 The Townsville ‘Introduction to the Defence Market’ will be held on 13th March 2018.
