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 has entered a Maritime Century as well as an Asian Century. In the 21st century, humanity has attained the capacity to use the world’s oceans more than ever before – for transport; for resources; and for the importance of the maritime environment itself.

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