Australian defence industry businesses across the country are being encouraged to submit their applications for inclusion in the 2021 Australian Defence Sales Catalogue.
Defence Industry Minister Melissa Price said Defence was opening the submission process for the Australian Defence Sales Catalogue early as part of the Morrison Government’s strategy to assist Australian small business.
“The catalogue showcases world-class Australian defence industry products and services, and is pivotal to the work of Australian Defence Attaches across the globe,” Minister Price said.
“It promotes quality Australian products and services to our foreign counterparts.
“I encourage small businesses which are involved with the defence sector to apply, as we are allowing more time for businesses to complete their applications.
“The Morrison Government and Defence have been working hard to keep the wheels of defence industry turning throughout the COVID pandemic. The 2021 Australian Defence Sales Catalogue is aimed at boosting sales and business activity and is another way we are continuing our support for the sector.”
The current edition of the catalogue includes leading-edge technologies, products and services from 170 Australian businesses, and this is expected to increase for the 2021 edition, as it has every year since inception.
Submissions will remain open until 23:59 AEDT on Sunday 27 September, 2020. Information on eligibility criteria and the process for the 2021 edition of the catalogue can be found on the Australian Military Sales website at: https://www.defence.gov.au/Export/australian-military-sales/
