Meet South Australia’s new sister


A sister region agreement between South Australia and Brittany will forge a closer relationship between Australia and France’s leading naval defence regions.

Premier Jay Weatherill and the President of Brittany Loïg Chesnais-Girard signed the agreement which aims to leverage the opportunities arising out of the $89 billion Future Submarines Program to explore other areas of shared interest.

In addition to being France’s leading naval defence region in terms of industry, military and education, Brittany is also France’s main cyber defence and security hub and leads the nation in advanced agrifood and fisheries.

The Memorandum of Understanding focusses on five key priority areas:

  • Defence, cyber-security and advanced manufacturing
  • Smart technologies, sustainability and climate change
  • Primary industries and regional economic development
  • Education, skills, training and research
  • Culture, arts and sport.
