Welcome to our first newsletter hot on the heels of another successful ADM2016 Congress! We squeezed a lot into the day but the general consensus from the feedback received is that it was a very worthwhile experience. Thank you to all who attended and especially to our speakers and panellists.
ADM Editor Katherine Ziesing, who performed admirably as chair on the day, has provided the highlights with Deputy Editor at Large Nigel Pittaway rounding out coverage this week. We've also got a wrap of the very entertaining panel on the Future of Australian Shipbuilding. If you missed the event, head to Twitter's #ADMCongress tag for a play by play of the day – you can also view the speakers' slides here
Senior Correspondent Philip Smart reports on Japan's commitment to building its Sea 1000 offering completely in Australia, as well as TKMS' statement addressing concerns that industry could not cope with a local build.
We'll be providing more analysis on what was said at Congress in coming days, in the meantime continue to follow the news across our web and social media channels,
