This Defence Week features coverage from our major annual event, ADM Congress 2018, which took place on Wednesday. Thanks to all who attended and  also to our speakers, sponsors and partners - you all assisted to make the event a success, fulfilling its brief to provide a valuable update to Defence, industry and government at the start of the year. 

Katherine Ziesing provides her analysis on the situation regarding the Benalla/Mulwala munitions factories, as concerns persist as to how the Commonwealth will demonstrate value for money, and it's also been a great week for the local steel production and manufacturing industry.

At the event we announced the finalists for the Essington Lewis Awards 2018 and launched the inaugural Women in Defence Awards - check out the links for more information,
