"When times are tough, Australians and New Zealanders have always relied on the distinctive qualities of mate ship, humour, ingenuity, courage and endurance to get us through.

Known as the ANZAC Spirit, these five qualities have defined Australians and New Zealanders ever since the first troops landed on the beaches of Gallipoli in World War I.

In the current climate, we’re reminding Australians and New Zealanders that we all bear these qualities within us, ready to come to the fore when we need them."

Background

  • National industry supply chains underpin our ability to mobilise and quickly respond to crisis or threat.
     

  • Global shocks to supply chains (e.g. Covid-19) reveal dependencies and challenges in sustained response.
     

  • All crises (e.g. bushfires, earthquakes and floods) require greater whole-of-nation coordination and decision support to optimally mobilise resources
     

  • Sovereign industry capability builds on  transparency of existing  supply chains and policy support.
     

  • Activating innovation ecosystems ingenuity can bring  startup agility to industry and Defence supply resilience.
