Launch of Naval Shipbuilding Industry Strategic Workforce Plan

It was a pleasure to be joined at Pacific 2019 by the Minister for Defence Industry, the Hon. Melissa Price MP and CEOs from the Australian Naval Shipbuilding primes to celebrate a milestone in workforce development.

The launch of the Australian Naval Shipbuilding Strategic Workforce Plan is a commitment by the primes to build, grow and maintain the Australian shipbuilding workforce to ensure we deliver the $90 billion in new and existing maritime programs over the decades ahead.

It’s groundbreaking to see this level of cooperation across industry. We will ensure Australians have the opportunity to become part of this exciting industry, not just for jobs, but for careers.
