Speaker: Peter Jennings, Executive Director, Australian Strategic Policy institute 
Subject: Does Australia need a 'Plan B' for its Defence policy?  

On 8 October 2019 in a speech at the RAN Sea Power Conference, the Minister for Defence advised that Defence was reassessing the strategic foundation of the 2016 Defence White Paper to meet new threats, amid changing relationships between the USA and China, and the rapid development of new military technologies. The Minister also advised that a separate review was being undertaken how to make the ADF more responsive to these changing circumstances.
So at a time when we are examining our defence planning, acquisition and force structure in the light of these changing circumstances, Peter Jennings, Executive Director of the Australian Strategic Policy Institute will undertake a thought provoking presentation on “Does Australia need a Plan B for its Defence policy?”
