Defence Growth for the Top End
The 2017 Defence Summit was held at the Darwin Convention Centre over 23 and 24 of October. As Northern Australia continues to establish itself as a key military and strategic region for the Australian Defence Force and its partners, further investment is needed to support the growing defence industry. Darwin has the necessary infrastructure, maintenance and sustainment required for their operation.
With the defence industry contributing almost 7% of economic growth of the top end, the region continues to maximise the benefits as the Australian Defence Force’s gateway to Asia and as a strategic base for long term defence collaboration and force posture.
The Land Development Corporation attended the two day event to reinforce the capabilities of the Marine Service Area and Common User Facility which includes the Multi User Barge Ramp infrastructure.
