With nineteen Australian engineers and procurement specialists in France learning submarine design expertise, we were honoured to have Premier Steven Marshall come past our office on Friday 6 December to show his support via video teleconference, and to reiterate the importance of the Australian Future Submarine Program to South Australia.
The Hon. Melissa Price, Minister for Defence Industries, sent her best wishes from Western Australia, and emphasised the significance of the work being undertaken for the Royal Australian Navy, and what it means for our country.
Along with other Naval Group Australia heads of staff, CEO John Davis gave a Program update, and thanked the engineers for all their hard work.
For the engineers – it was a welcome ‘taste of home’ as we head into the festive season. Thank you to everyone who was involved.
