Supporting the valuable contributions of industry from NZ and across the world

In the 2019 Defence Capability Plan (DCP), the NZDIA is described as
‘… the preeminent body representing the commercial interests of Defence industry and its individual members. It is industry’s main conduit into Defence and vice versa.’


At the NZDIA Forum on 1 November 2018 Ron Mark, Minister for Defence said:
“Indeed, to deliver value to the Community, Nation and the World into the future, the importance of fostering strong and enduring relationships with Defence industry suppliers cannot be overstated. However, it would be a mistake to define defence industry too narrowly. The value it provides to the Defence Force, and to New Zealand communities, is greater than the delivery of platforms and equipment alone.
Trends such as climate change, transnational crime, irregular migration and terrorism will see the diversity and frequency of events we need to respond to grow. We will require strong strategic partnerships for in-service support to enable our capabilities to maintain high availability and be ready to respond to these changes.”
