Thales STUDY vindicates Australian industrial cooperation policy
A study prepared by economic analysis firm AlphaBeta Advisers on behalf of Thales Australia has found that the defence company spent AUD$1.3bn ($900m) with Australian suppliers between 2017 and 2019. More than 60 percent went to SMEs. Australia’s Minister for Defence Industry has hailed the study as evidence of the success of the country’s industrial cooperation policies.
