EOIs now open for 2024 events with Team Defence Australia

National and International opportunities for Hunter Defence-ready businesses

It’s looking like a busy start to the year for defence businesses, with EOI’s now open for the first round of Team Defence Australia trade missions and opportunities to apply for solicitations and tenders in the UK. Opportunities there include NMR resourcing and airfield ground support equipment.

Deadlines are looming for many of them – so it’s time to hustle! Here’s a summary from Sharon Foster, Senior Export Advisor from TradeStart via Investment NSW.
