"Future Conflict & Defence of the Realm"

Wednesday 21st February 2018


Australia, as “the lucky nation” has experienced a relaxed attitude to internal and external threats since World War ll. Only recently we have started to feel the effect of a global change. Both internal and external threats are part of a changing landscape of geopolitics. Asia’s strong influence over the Australian economy also means we are more reliant on regional peace. Political ideology and religious disharmony provide added threats to our comfortable, regional lifestyle.

Our expert panel will address how our external and internal defence capability is now a major consideration for a buoyant regional economy, and continuity of our Australian way of life.
