TOUR HIGHLIGHTS Launching our new product, WA DEFENCE REVIEW compiled for the first time a highlights video for an exclusive industry tour organised in partnership with the Subsea Innovation Cluster Australia. The interactive tour of the JFD Australia Bibra Lake facility was undertaken on 6 June 2018 and involved over 30 decision-makers and senior professionals from across the defence and resources sectors. The success of the tour is evidenced by the feedback received from those who attended from across industry. SPECIAL EVENTS In two events that occurred on 30 October and 14 November 2018 respectively, WA DEFENCE REVIEW made history by launching our much awaited inaugural Annual Publication. Comprising 84 pages of expert analysis, commentary and exclusive interviews; the Annual Publication achieved the objective of providing WA's defence sector greater precedence in national defence conversations. DIALOGUE HIGHLIGHTS The WA DEFENCE REVIEW Strategy, Defence & Industry Dialogue is an independent, unbiased and apolitical roundtable-style Chatham House Rule policy discussion forum. WA DEFENCE REVIEW held its third Strategy, Defence & Industry Dialogue on 12 February 2018 in partnership with the City of Perth. The theme of this Dialogue focused on "Defence and Resources: Trends and Prospects". The Dialogue brought together distinguished senior officials, decision-makers and representative peak bodies from across the spectrum of government, industry, defence and academia to assist development of policy outcomes benefiting WA's defence sector. FEATURE INTERVIEW As a leading naval force that operates in the Indo-Pacific region the Royal Australian Navy plays an integral role in contributing to regional security. Speaking exclusively to WA DEFENCE REVIEW in late October, the Chief of Australia's Navy, Vice Admiral Michael Noonan AO, provided insights into how the Royal Australian Navy engages the Indo-Pacific region and its future strategic priorities. FEATURE INTERVIEW As a leading global shipbuilder, the Lurssen Group has successfully entered the Australian market, and is now heavily invested in the build program for the Royal Australian Navy's offshore patrol vessel. In late October Lurssen Group CEO, Peter Lurssen, gave an exclusive interview to WA DEFENCE REVIEW and talked about the company's current activities and future interests in Australia and neighbouring regions. FEATURE INTERVIEW Founded in 2008 the Defence Materials Technology Centre (DMTC) collaborates with Australian industry, research and government agencies to advance priority technologies that strengthen Australia's defence and industrial capacity.
