2018 WA Indo-Pacific Defence Conference

Tuesday 30 October 2018

While the trend toward an increasingly integrated Indo-Pacific was initially viewed from the perspective of economics, trade and energy flows, it is increasingly apparent that the rise of the Indo-Pacific era also has major implications for national defence and regional security.

The 2018 Western Australian Indo-Pacific Defence Conference convened strategic thinkers from the military, industry, academic and government in Perth Australia, home to Australia’s largest naval base, a growing defence industry, and a vibrant civic and academic community.

This event examined the broader geo-strategic environment of the Indo-Pacific and the important role Australia will continue to play in the region via its expertise in defence capability and resources. It also showcased regional opportunities to WA-based industries, as well as national and international stakeholders.

Th conference promoted the State’s defence capability to national and international defence stakeholders, and provided new and relevant information from high-level speakers to educate and inspire our local industry, and assist them in becoming world class and globally competitive (export ready).
