Simon Stuart, MAJGEN Head Land Capability, has written to formally advise of Army's decision to postpone the conduct of a Land Environment Working Group (LEWG) until second quarter, 2021.
This decision has been informed by ongoing COVID-19 restrictions which limit physical attendance, and feedback received from some elements of Industry on the relative value of virtual engagements. In the interim, I am pleased to inform you that the Chief of Army has released Edition Two of Army's Contribution to Defence Strategy (ACDS), available online at www.army.gov.au
ACDS Edition Two aims to create a shared understanding of how Army contributes to the Australian Defence Force and to Australia's national security. ACDS is informed by the Defence Strategic Update and Force Structure Plan 2020 and will help guide Army concepts, workforce and training to generate greater capacity and capability.
Please see attached letter from MAJGEN Simon Stuart, Head Land Capability, on the scheduling of the next Land Environment Working Group, and release of Army’s Contribution to Defence Strategy Edition 2.
