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.

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.
