ABBOTSFORD, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 08/07/14 -- Public Works and Government Services Canada
The Honourable Diane Finley, Minister of Public Works and Government Services, delivered a keynote address today at the 2014 Aerospace, Defence and Security Expo, organized by the Aerospace Industries Association of Canada Pacific. Minister Finley's remarks mainly focused on the progress that the Government is making, in close collaboration with industry, in implementing the Defence Procurement Strategy. She also reiterated the Government's commitment to working with industry to ensure that its purchases of defence equipment encourage research and development, innovation, job creation and economic growth.
-- The Defence Procurement Strategy has three key objectives: delivering the right equipment to the Canadian Armed Forces and the Canadian Coast Guard in a timely manner; leveraging our purchases of defence equipment to create jobs and economic growth in Canada; and streamlining defence procurement processes. -- On June 16, 2014, the first edition of the Defence Acquisition Guide (DAG) was released. The DAG will help industry make investment and strategic partnering decisions aimed at enhancing opportunities to compete for possible purchases of military equipment and services.
"Since the launch of Canada's new Defence Procurement Strategy, collaboration between our Government and industry to better leverage purchases has been unprecedented. Canada's defence industry has some of the best talent in the world, and I thank all of the participants who have contributed to the successful progress and implementation of the new Strategy so far."
