Ai Group welcomes awarding of patrol boat contract to WA industry

Australian Industry Group WA State Manager Kristian Stratton has welcomed the awarding of the patrol boat contract to WA industry.

"The Federal Government's decision to build 10 of its 12 new offshore patrol boats in WA is a vote of confidence in local industry capability and presents WA with a huge opportunity to further develop the local shipbuilding industry," he said.

"We commend the State Government for the work it has done advocating on behalf of local industry, and look forward to further collaboration between government and industry that leads to additional defence contracts in the future."
