SubSTEC4 is convened by the Submarine Institute of Australia (SIA).

“We are pleased that Nick Xenophon has accepted our invitation to speak at SubSTEC4,” said SIA executive director David Nicholls.

“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.”

Nicholls said like many in the community, Xenophon’s interest in submarines has increased significantly in recent years.
