In this episode, Grant McHerron and Ewen Levick talk with Mark Stevens, founder of Arican Advisory Capital, regarding the Defence Strategic Review’s impacts on Australian Defence Industry. 

This in depth discussion assesses the impacts of the reduction in Army's new vehicles, the response from Army, and the challenges surrounding increasing sovereign capability. We also explore the domestic industry’s continued struggle for skilled staff, delivering capability faster, and how this review will change the industry in the short term.

We also discuss how SMEs can best address these challenges and secure engagement with Defence. We wrap up by unpacking how the Australian public’s deprioritisation of Defence over public services has impacted the spending required to ensure the nation's security from international threats.
