Ai Group welcomed the opportunity to provide a submission to the Senate Foreign Affairs, Defence and Trade Legislation Committee inquiry into the Performance of the Department of Defence in supporting the capability and capacity of Australia’s defence industry.

The inquiry ultimately aims to strengthen the relationship between the Defence Department and defence industry to ensure a robust, sustainable, and effective defence capability for the nation's security and sovereignty.

To inform this submission, Ai Group gathered views from a range of member companies with a focus on areas requiring reform to support our national security and develop the Australian industrial base. By leveraging these insights, we can shape policies and initiatives that foster innovation, drive exports, and bolster our sovereign capabilities.
