Australia to emulate Spain, commissions new defence export strategy
Australia’s Minister for Defence Industry, Christopher Pyne, has said that he is looking to Spain’s 60-year shipbuilding strategy as a model for industrial participation. He disclosed he has commissioned a new defence export strategy for Australia designed to help strengthen its defence industrial base. The new strategy is due before the end of the year, together with a new Defence Industry Capability Plan.
