Sydney Olympic Park. Launch of SADIG

NSW Minister for Trade and Investment, Andrew Stoner, said NSW had a strong story to tell in terms of the defence and aerospace industries, at the launch of the Sydney Aerospace & Defence Interest Group (SADIG), at Sydney Olympic Park. “ SADIG will play an important role in not only supporting the collaboration of individual companies and organisations, but also in promoting the strengths and capabilities that reside in Sydney [in these industries].”

Mr Stoner said the NSW government would continue to target major projects [such as Quickstep’s relocation from Perth to Bankstown] and sustainment opportunities; create longer-term opportunities by developing defence capability in areas aligned to both the state’s industrial strengths and future opportunities; and seek to translate the investment, skills and technology gained from defence projects into wider commercial opportunities.
