Five Australian small businesses are sharing in more than $1.1 million in Morrison Government grant funding to boost their export capability.
The new funding comes as the Government makes it easier for Australian industry to grow and achieve export success through the release of the Australian Defence Export Office App.
Minister for Defence Industry Melissa Price said the more than $1.1 million in Defence Global Competiveness grant funding had gone to Electro Cad Australia in South Australia, Buzzworks (Queensland), Orbital Corporation (WA), Advanced Navigation (NSW) and Visit Industrial (Victoria).
“The Defence Global Competitiveness Grant Program is continuing to grow and enable our defence industry to build greater export success,” Minister Price said.
“These five small businesses are targeting export opportunities as direct exporters or through the global supply chains, demonstrating the dynamic nature of our defence industry.
Minister Price said the Australian Defence Export Office mobile App included a pocket version of the Australian Defence Sales Catalogue.
The App, available for both Apple and Android phones, will include details of all of the 214 companies featured in the latest Catalogue.
“This will make it even easier for Australian businesses to access export assistance provided by the Government, as well as to promote their products, services and technologies,” Minister Price said.
