This event is closed to the media.
The American, British, Canadian, and Australian defense industries are underpinned by a strong and longstanding history of cooperation and collaboration. Despite this strong foundation, the government and defence industries of Quadrilateral countries are facing an external environment of increasing uncertainty and accelerating change.
In light of these external challenges, what opportunities does closer collaboration offer – be it in capability development, making greater use of the National Technology and Industrial Base, or through reforming export controls.
By sharing our common knowledge and experiences, our industries can learn from each other, better anticipate challenges, identify leading practices, and develop collaborative solutions. Senior industry and government officials of the four nations will address these themes and questions at this Quadrilateral Defence & Security Conference to be held in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada on Tuesday 30 May 2017.
