Big news ladies and gents - Land 400 is on the move. After receiving NSC approval, the multi-billion dollar program will have a formal announcement by the minister early in 2015. This will be closely followed by the release of the RFT, with an industry brief to take place in Melbourne around the same time as the Avalon airshow. Everyone wants to be in Melbourne at the end of February!
If you've been under a rock this week you may have missed the news that the AWD program is being remediated. Again. For seven months until the government works out what it really wants to do with the national maritime industry.

Enjoy the silly season and on behalf of the ADM team, we look forward to seeing you in 2015.
