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.

In 2018, the Australian Government launched the Defence Export Strategy to help the defence industry achieve greater export success. At Export Finance Australia, we support the Strategy through providing financing solutions to the Australian defence industry and administering the US$3 billion Defence Export Facility.
