Since the inaugural PACIFIC International Maritime Exposition in 2000, the 11 biennial PACIFIC events held to date have seen PACIFIC (now INDO PACIFIC) firmly established as an essential hub for topical discussion of issues affecting naval and commercial maritime strategy, industry and technology. INDO PACIFIC has become a key platform for engagement between naval defence and commercial maritime industries, government and defence leaders, researchers and academia from Australia, the Indo-Asia-Pacific region and around the world. INDO PACIFIC 2022 will come at a critical time in Australia’s maritime history as our commercial shipping industry regenerates in the aftermath of the COVID-19 pandemic and the Royal Australian Navy responds to dynamic regional issues. It will illustrate key elements of the unprecedented $75 billion investment in Australia’s maritime defence capabilities announced as part of the 2020 Force Structure Plan, including more than $50 billion in the regeneration and expansion of Australian Defence Force maritime platforms through the naval shipbuilding enterprise.
