Australian Made Defence
APC Technology is a public supporter.
This campaign which is being lead by the Defence Teaming Centre, aims to ensure defence contracts are awarded to Australian companies and manufacturing continues in country are showing their support byd supporting solutions organisation.
In 2015, the former Prime Minister Tony Abbot announced Australia’s Future Frigates and Offshore Patrol Vessels (OPVs) will be built locally. Although this is a positive step for our shipbuilding industry, we need an ongoing plan for our sector’s future – there’s still a long way to go.
Of the $89 billion announced, $50 billion could still be sent offshore, with no commitment to a local build for the Future Submarine program.
Unlike many other nations, Australia has never developed a long-term continuous shipbuilding plan for all naval and non-naval fleets. A continuous plan is the most effective way to mapping out our requirements in the long-term, this way, it’s best for industry, for workers and for Australian taxpayers.
Instead, our Defence equipment has been acquired on an ad-hoc, project by project basis in a a more expensive and inefficient way to meet our needs. The uncertainty and insecurity caused by the lack of forward planning has made it hard for businesses to invest into the innovations and technologies, and many have had to close up shops, affecting thousands of Australians across the country.
Without a plan, Australia’s shipbuilding industry is in jeopardy – as is the sovereignty, security and economic benefits that follow.
