The Centre for Defence Industry Capability (CDIC) will bring together the private sector, Defence and AusIndustry to transform the relationship between Defence and industry to help deliver the cutting-edge capability our armed forces require. This is a 10-year, $230 million investment that will create more jobs and drive growth in Adelaide and across the country. The CDIC will work with small-to-medium enterprises across Australia to promote defence industry competitiveness and guide the priorities across defence industry. The Centre will also offer a range of advisory services including mentoring, defence market access, export facilitation and global supply chain development.
