As the Australian government's trade, investment and education promotion agency, the Australian Trade and Investment Commission (Austrade) assists Australian businesses of all sizes to navigate complex overseas markets and help facilitate global export.

In this episode of Defence Connect Podcast, host Phil Tarrant is joined by Roland Stephens, senior industry expert in defence, advanced manufacturing and space at Austrade, to outline the government's attitude towards defence and space exports, how he would characterise the Australian defence industry as a whole to potential investors, and the key skills required to get a business export ready.

Stephens also explains why risk management is such a critical skill for SMEs in the defence sector, the classic process of entering into a new market, and the grants that are currently available to support SMEs looking to expand internationally.
