Distinguished Speaker Series: The Navy in the Maritime Century - Chief of Navy, Vice Admiral Griggs


The Chief of Navy, Vice Admiral Griggs, will deliver a speech at the Lowy Institute on the Navy’s role in contributing to Australia’s national prosperity in the maritime century.

Australia is inextricably linked to this trend and our national prosperity and well-being are utterly dependent on our ability to use the ocean.
