Strengthening opportunities for local industry

Local industry will have more opportunities to participate in major Defence infrastructure projects as part of a pilot program announced by Minister for Defence, Senator the Hon Marise Payne, today.

The Local Industry Capability Plan pilot will ensure that local industry has the best possible opportunity to be involved in the Turnbull Government’s unprecedented $200 billion investment in Defence capability over the next decade, including approximately $7.7 billion to upgrade Defence facilities in the Northern Territory.
