High-profile political leader and former Senator, Nick Xenophon will be the guest speaker at the conference dinner on 14 November at the 4th Submarine Science, Technology and Engineering Conference (SubSTEC4), which is convened by the Submarine Institute of Australia (SIA).
Mr Xenophon, who has resigned from the Senate to attempt to return to the South Australian Parliament at next year’s South Australian election with his SA-BEST party, is expected to provide forthright insights into submarines and other defence issues during his speech, which will take place at the Adelaide Convention Centre.
SIA Executive Director David Nicholls said, “One of the purposes of the SIA is to promote informed discussion and debate about submarine matters and Mr Xenophon’s presence will help us to achieve this objective at SubSTEC4.
“Like many in the community, Mr Xenophon’s interest in the public policy environment as it relates to submarines has increased significantly in recent years and delegates attending the conference dinner will receive first-hand insights into his latest views and perspectives on Australia’s submarine capability development, including the Future Submarine Program, and other defence-related issues.”
