“Talking to the Chiefs: Rick Burr (part 1)

A recent article on the Australian Strategic Policy Institute website summarises an interview with new Australian Army chief Lieutenant General Rick Burr.

Burr provides insights into the ADF’s necessary process of adaptation to complex and increasingly high-tech threats in the Asia-Pacific region and broader globe:

“Like every new Chief of Army, I really focus on readiness, modernisation and people. Those three pillars certainly are my focus. They’re the ones I’m accountable for. To always invest intellectually in our modernisation, and to deliver that modernisation to keep the army relevant and capable for an ever-changing context. And delivering that through our people, acknowledging them as our competitive advantage.”
