What is a defence export?
A defence export is any defence-specific or dual-use good, or service, exported by the Australian defence industry, including as part of a supply chain, that is intended for a defence or national security end-user.
Who can we support?
As Australia’s export credit agency, we have a track record of supporting Australian defence exporters across multiple sectors such as air, land, sea and cyber security to help them win defence contracts overseas.
