Defence Export Facility


The Government’s Defence Export Strategy

In 2018, the Australian Government launched the Defence Export Strategy to help the defence industry achieve greater export success.

The Strategy aims to build a stronger, more sustainable and globally competitive Australian defence industry to support Australia’s capability needs.

It brings government and industry together to provide end-to-end support for defence exports. This ranges from building export readiness, to identifying export opportunities, providing finance and, ultimately, realising export outcomes.

How we support the Defence Export Facility

As part of the Defence Export Strategy, we administer the US$3 billion Defence Export Facility.

This Facility gives the Australian defence industry the confidence to seek new direct export and supply chain contracts, knowing there is a source of finance available. It also allows us to better help businesses receive the finance they need to grow internationally.
