The Albanese Government is committed to driving export opportunities for Australian defence industry and looking for opportunities to embed them into the global supply chain.

The Australian Defence Sales Catalogue is the flagship publication to promote Australian defence industry businesses on the international stage. The 2023 edition showcased a record-breaking number of more than 250 export-ready products and services.

From 2024, the catalogue will be renamed the Australian Defence Export Catalogue to reflect the Government’s intent not only to sell Australian products internationally, but also to boost Australian ingenuity in global supply chains.

Submissions for the 2024 edition are now open to Australian defence industry businesses.

The Australian Defence Export Catalogue connects Australian businesses with foreign governments. Applications for inclusion can be lodged online via the Australian Defence Export Office (ADEO) Portal at https://exporters.adeoportal.defence.gov.au.

Applications close at 23:59 AEDT on 13 November 2023. Information on eligibility criteria and the application process can be found on the ADEO app, or the ADEO Portal.
