Minister notes importance of industry, industry programs

Minister for Defence Materiel, the Hon. Mike Kelly MP has noted the importance of defence industry, and defence industry programs in equipping and sustaining the Australian Defence Force in a statement on the role of defence industry. The Minister quotes BAE Systems’ CEO David Allott’s comments from the story on DMTC’s activities which aired recently on the ABC’s 7:30 Report. The Minister’s statement reinforces the concept that defence industry is a defence capability in itself. DMTC welcomes this statement and looks forward to hearing more of Minister Kelly’s views as the keynote speaker at the DMTC Conference dinner in Canberra, on March 19.
