In this week's Premium newsletter, I was fortunate to take a closer look at the Italian FREMM frigate Carabiniere as she sailed from Sydney to Melbourne. In support of the Fincantieri bid for Project Sea 5000 Future Frigate, of which the ship's visit to Australia has played a key role, Italian Defence Minister Roberta Pinotti has also been flying the flag as she met with Defence Minister Marise Payne.

In other news the NSW Government is getting behind the State's defence industry with a new strategy and Tomcar shows that innovative vehicle manufacture in this country can be successful.   

A correction to Defence Week Premium 432 last week: Broens NSW is under administration NOT Broens SA. This part of the business continues to operate smoothly. Many apologies for any confusion our story may have caused.

The Essington Lewis Awards (known formerly as the ADM/DMO Excellence in Collaboration Awards) will make a return this year after a short hiatus. We are currently seeking expressions of interest with a deadline set for March 21.

Finally ADM's February Avalon Airshow special edition is now available online. The ADM team looks forward to catching up with those attending the show next week,
