The 2019 Indo-Pacific Defence Conference will be held at Crown Towers in Perth on August 12, showcasing the best of WA-based defence industry and research capabilities.
The State Government has partnered with the Perth USAsia Centre to deliver the conference which will convene strategic thinkers from the military, industry, academic and government sectors from across the Indo-Pacific region.
It follows the inaugural conference held in Perth last year and is a direct action from the State Government's WA Defence and Defence Industries Strategic Plan.
The theme of this year's conference is 'An era of new and renewed partnerships' with a focus on topics including a new role for Indonesia in the region, a growing role for Japan, an aspirational role for India, a renewed role for the United Kingdom and France, and a continued role for the United States.
Key note speakers and panel discussions will explore themes around industry support for the changing operational environment, new frontiers in defence technology, WA's STEM agenda, and defence industry applications for WA's battery minerals and resources expertise.
Five hundred delegates from across the region are expected to attend the conference.
Key note speakers include Major General (Ret.) Seo Young, Professor of Korea National Defense University; Mark Lippert, former US Ambassador to South Korea and now Vice President at Boeing International; and Lieutenant General (Ret.) Agus Widjojo, former Vice Chairman of the People's Consultative Assembly of the Republic of Indonesia and Tentara Nasional Indonesia's Chief of Territorial Affairs.
