With each passing day the regional balance of power is evolving, setting the stage for a big year for Defence and defence industry as Australia prepares for the challenges of the 2020s.

In this episode of the Defence Connect Podcast, hosts Phil Tarrant and Steve Kuper recap all the very latest in Australian Defence, defence industry and national security policy news.

Phil and Steve discuss the geo-strategic environment and challenges facing incoming US President Joe Biden, particularly in the aftermath of recent provocative actions against Taiwan by the People’s Republic of China.

The pair also talk about an opinion piece by retired Major General, now senator, Jim Molan about the government’s plans to acquire the Apache and the flurry of feedback from Defence Connect’s readership.

Finally, the pair also discuss some of the new year success stories for Australian defence industry leaders; Sydney-based advanced manufacturing powerhouse Quickstep and Canberra-based cyber security company archTIS.
