Paul Papalia first joined the Defence Connect Podcast at Pacific 2017 to discuss the opportunities that the 2016 Defence White Paper presented to Western Australia in cementing the region as a defence industry leader. Two years on, he joins us at Pacific 2019 to reflect on the progress that has been seen, discuss the general sentiment towards defence in the area, and reveal why there are many reasons for WA to be optimistic in the current defence climate.
Minister Papalia explains the prominent role that WA plays in the trade economy with China, discusses his role as Tourism Minister for the region, and unpacks the WA Defence and Defence Industries Strategic Plan and how this will further raise awareness of the already thriving defence sector in WA on a global scale.
