Local defence companies on show at Pacific 2017
Tuesday, 3 October 2017
South Australian defence businesses will promote their capabilities to some of the world’s leading defence companies at the three-day Pacific Maritime Exhibition in Sydney, starting today.
Representatives from 26 local companies, research organisations and educational institutes will be joined by Defence and Space Industries Minister Martin Hamilton-Smith at the international exhibition.
It will be an ideal opportunity for South Australian industry to meet with defence companies in the global supply chain for upcoming Future Frigate, Future Submarine and Offshore Patrol Vessel programs.
South Australian Government representatives will connect with nine of Europe’s top 10 defence companies, attending 10 international business networking events and 20 meetings with major defence organisations across the three days.
In addition to presenting on the State Government’s Defence State stand, South Australian companies will network with visiting French delegates including new French Ambassador to Australia, His Excellency, Christophe Penot.
